It hardly seems appropriate to discuss the life of Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman through a series of witty and often eccentric tales. But to tell the tale any other way would be a disservice to him. Despite being brilliant, Richard was also a charismatic character who had enough stories to match the heads of a dozen ordinary scientists.
One of the greatest gifts of this book is that perceptive readers will realize that Richard teaches by helping others to understand a certain topic, not just learn it by rote memorization. When it comes to real learning, and not just the repetition of statistics, this can make all the difference.
Mr. Feynman spent much of his time investigating the Challenger disaster, and his finding helped to identify the mysterious circumstances surrounding the tragedy. While this work was momentous and incredibly important, most people will remember him for his quick wit, cutting intellect, and his ability to solve problems that left others scratching their heads.
