Winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1965, Richard Feynman was one of the world's greatest theoretical physicists, but he was also a man who fell, often jumped, into adventure. An artist, safecracker, practical joker and storyteller, Feynman's life was a series of combustoble combinations made possible by his unique mixture of high intelligence, unquenchable curiosity and eternal scepticism. Over a period of years, Feynman's conversations with his friend Ralph Leighton were first taped and then set down as they appear here, little changed from their spoken form, giving a wise, funny, passionate and totally honest self-portrait of one of the greatest men of our age.

 Worth learning to read for!

Quite possibly the single best book I've ever read. It's the one book that everyone should read before they die. In the event that you can't read, this book makes learing to do so worthwhile! (It's also worth pointing out that - despite RPF being a physicist of some note - this is a book about his life, not his profession - so you don't need to understand physics or maths to enjoy it)

Feynman's writing style is entertaining (as always), and here he's writing on one of his favourite subjects - R P Feynman :)

The stories he tells are wonderful - learn about how he "broke into" locked cabinets at secret goverment research projects [Los Alamos]. How he based his Nobel prize-winning work on spinning plates...the list goes on.

A curious character indeed, a wonderfully gifted human being. And a marvellous, marvellous book.
