Richard Feynman, one of the world's greatest theoretical physicists, thrived on adventure. His outrageous exploits once shocked a Princeton dean's wife to exclaim: "Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!" In this phenomenal national bestseller, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist recounts in his inimitable voice his experiences trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and Bohr and ideas on gambling with Nick the Greek, painting a naked female toreador, accompanying a ballet on his bongo drums, and much else of an eyebrow-raising and hilarious nature. Woven together with his views on science, Feynman's life story is a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, eternal skepticism, and raging chutzpah.… (mais)

    What Do You Care What Other People Think? de Richard P. Feynman (qball56k)
    qball56k: If you liked Surely You're Joking, you'll probably like the sequel as well. It's in many ways a more personal look at one of the most famous physicists of the 20th century.

    Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly de Anthony Bourdain (noise)

This has been on The List for a long time and finally took the time to read it. I am familiar with Feynmen's brilliance, and somewhat with his whimsy but this was enlightening. His revealed character flaws were incongruous with some of his strong character traits, but the last thing he would have wanted is deification so, warts and all, he was human. I liked the essays/articles/descriptions of his scientific investigations and his time at Los Alamos and Oak Ridge, and was entertained by his curiosity - safe-cracking? Love it!

More than anything, I liked I don’t know what’s the matter with people: they don’t learn by understanding; they learn by some other way–by rote, or something. Their knowledge is so fragile!Memorization is not understanding.

Anyway, this prompted me to pick up The Quotable Feynman, and I have decided to work my way through his massive three-volume lectures on physics. 42 years ago I started out majoring in physics, switching because I was too immature to understand that I had to have the ... understanding ... before I could get to the "good stuff". Time to close the circle. ( )

Definitely an interesting read (and brief) but Feynman can be repetitive and a bit of a braggart. Worth reading if you're interested in physics, science, famous scientists, or intriguing little one off stories. Personally I enjoyed a play on similar subject matter, Q. E. D., much better. This is so breezy and wacky though that it's hard to not like it. ( )

I'll just start off by saying I'm not a genius. Now that we have that out of the way, I'll admit that this book brought up all kinds of feelings for me. First off, I don't know squat about physics. Math was never my strong suit. And logical thinking? Um, no.

But, Feynman's brilliance in these areas (I'll take his, and other people's, word for it) was not what makes this an interesting book for me. It's not even his quirkiness. His experiences playing the drums, spending time in a sensory deprivation tank, safe cracking, and defending topless bars have varying levels of charm for me, ranging from quite charming to quite less-than charming. They were interesting and amusing at best and bemusing at worst. I realize the mid-twentieth century was a different time with different cultural mores, but as a female, the whole topless bar thing makes me a bit uncomfortable.

About halfway through the book, I was ready to lay it aside. He was starting to come across as tiresomely brilliant if that makes sense. But something had me continue with it and I'm glad I did. To me, his stories became more interesting the older he got. And the very last chapter? story? speech? was the best part of the entire book in my opinion. Because when I finished it, I had read, not just about a genius, but about a human being. Feynman comes across as someone that seems to be increasingly rare in these days of gaslighting. He was an honest man with a deep love of science and truth.

Someone who reads the book with an understanding of physics and Feynman's legacy will likely get a lot more out of it than I did. But his joy in his experiences and his integrity in career made the book worth the time. ( )

Not what I thought it was. More a collection of tales with large parts missing from his life, and not always in order. Laughed out loud a few times. I can see how some people might see it as too "braggy" and self centered but it's literally his stories. For example saying he is good at the drums. Who cares if he is actually good or not, the story is his drumming was used as the music of a ballet - and that is a wacky, interesting story. Not a deep look into a person's life like a biography, more like a collection of movie trailers. ( )
