Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!
Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!: Adventures of a Curious Character is a collection Richard Feynman's memoirs edited by Ralph Leighton. It was published in 1985 and was so successful, there was a sequel released called What Do You Care What Other People Think?
I don't own this book, but have read it and listened to an audio book recording.
— This section contains spoilers! —
- Feynman tells interesting stories and Leighton has a very comfortable writing style.
- Feynman's fearlessness with his desire to always try new things and work at them until he becomes good is really admirable.
- A lot of the topics are fascinating like the development of the nuclear bomb.
- Feynman, by his own accounts, is callous toward women. I understand this is a product of being a man in the 1940s, but that's not an excuse.
