5.0 out of 5 stars An easy and informative read
I've read a number of Feynman books (including "Genius") so i know the subject quite well. This comic book version of his life is accurate, informative, humorous and, at times, poignant. A wonderful book to introduce young readers to one of the most brilliant minds of the 20th century.

2.0 out of 5 stars Brutal kindle formatting!
The book is great! Nothing against the author or artist. I downloaded the kindle version on my gen3 ipad and it sucked! The panels would not progress sequentially like the comixology app (really!!). I could not view one page in portrait view, only two pages in landscape view. Thus making it hard too read and if that wasn't enough it tended too crash the kindle app. This...

Thus making it hard too read and if that wasn't enough it tended too crash the kindle app. This will change over time, but for now it's a great subject handled beautifully in sequential art but completely failed by the kindle app. -cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Feynman, a Science Gold Mine for Teens, Nov. 20 2011
Ce commentaire est de: Feynman (Hardcover)
Feynman, a graphic novel written by Jim Ottaviani has the power to excite and educate the minds of interested youths and adults alike.
Jim Ottaviani has created an accessible text that does justice to the science and unique personality of Richard P. Feynman (1918 - 1988). The art by Leland Myrick skillfully conveys in a visual format many hard notions of quantum mechanics and portrays the many giants of modern physics who crossed the path of Feynman, and the colouring by Hilary Sycamore in this stunning graphic novel is at times vivid, always varied and often employs soft hues. Feynman, a book suitable for Junior High or High School students, serves as a fabulous primer for quantum mechanics and QED. Ottaviani, to my mind, has wisely left the more salacious adulterous elements out of the text, to make the book child-friendly, a highly worthy goal. The interested adult may find a full treatment of this very human but less palatable aspect of Feynman's life in Genius by James Gleick.
This fine and rewarding book on Feynman deserves to be in every Junior High Science or High School Physics class room and in the home of any parent who wants to instill in their teenager a love of science, as the father of Richard P. Feynman did with such notable results.
