Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman!: Adventures of a Curious Character by Richard Feynman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Mr Feynman reminds me of my grandfather. Prankster and joker, who enjoyed his life and people around him.
Topping that, Feynman is a genius and had tremendous impact on the world of physics.
This book is about his life and his view on the world and our participation in it. Honest, straightforward and analytical and yet spiritual.
