Book Overview
Richard P. Feynman, winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, thrived on outrageous adventures. In this lively work that can shatter the stereotype of the stuffy scientist ( Detroit Free Press ), Feynman recounts his experiences trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and cracking the uncrackable safes guarding the most deeply held nuclear secrets--and much more of an eyebrow-raising nature. In his stories, Feynman's life shines through in all its eccentric glory--a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, and raging chutzpah. Included for this edition is a new introduction by Bill Gates.
