One of the best book I have ever read. This is hilarious, witty and the point is this is not from any entertainer or comedian, but from on the most brilliant mind the world has ever seen. This book is inspiring. I am lucky to have on in my collection.

I absolutely LOVE this book. I have never laughed so much while reading a book as I did with this one.

If there was any place I could go back in time to, it would be to one of Feynman's lectures!!

anyone looking for a hilarious uplifting, fun book-Read this!!

An interesting glimpse into the mind of a brilliant, straightforward and honest thinker. I wish I could have had him as a teacher.

This was a great read. Feynman is a remarkable man, calls it as he sees it and he is pretty darn perceptive. Loved this book, recommended it to friends.

I can't see why so many idiots give Feynman's books bad reviews and say "the guy is OVERRATED man!" These people are probably just jealous because Feynman was UNDOUBTEDLY the coolest smart-person who ever lived. Moreover, this is the book which provides conclusive proof of that fact. Anyone who says Feynman was overrated is blatantly wrong -- In fact, I have been interning at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, where I met a man named Don Thompson who actually met Feynman when he did his post-doctoral work at Caltech. As Don says, "Feynman was just as funny, brilliant, and vibrant as all the books and accounts say he was." So, buy this book, and don't believe all the idiots who give it bad reviews.

A compilation of chronologically lined-up short stories about Feynman's life, this book cannot be called an autobiography; we just get the « greatest hits ». We discover a really smart man through his relations with authority, art, science, religion, psychology, music and more. Feynman worked as a physicist but you don't find the typical introverted lab-coat nerd personality; instead we get to know a curious man with passions from lock picking to drums. Feynman mentions scientific stuff he works on to give context, but no more; we often forget he's a physicist (one of the most important physicists of the 20th Century, no less!): the book thus can be enjoyed by anybody, especially... you.
