Overview

Nobel Prize—winning physicist Richard Feynman possessed an unquenchable thirst for adventure and an unparalleled ability to tell the stories of his life. In these two perennially popular, bestselling memoir collections, Feynman weaves his views on modern science together with his outrageous life experiences—a combustible mixture of intelligence, curiosity, skepticism, and chutzpah.

In Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! , Feynman recounts his adventures trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and Bohr, gambling with Nick the Greek, painting a naked female toreador, and much else of an eyebrow-raising and hilarious nature.

In What Do You Care What Other People Think? , Feynman introduces us to his first love, who lay dying in a nearby hospital while he worked on the atomic bomb at Los Alamos, and shares his brilliant experiment which revealed the cause of the space shuttle Challenger's explosion.
