Richard Feynman, one of the world's greatest theoretical physicists, thrived on adventure. His outrageous exploits once shocked a Princeton dean's wife to exclaim: "Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!" In this phenomenal national bestseller, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist recounts in his inimitable voice his experiences trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and Bohr and ideas on gambling with Nick the Greek, painting a naked female toreador, accompanying a ballet on his bongo drums, and much else of an eyebrow-raising and hilarious nature. Woven together with his views on science, Feynman's life story is a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, eternal skepticism, and raging chutzpah.… (meer)

    Laat ze maar praten door Richard P. Feynman (qball56k)
    qball56k: If you liked Surely You're Joking, you'll probably like the sequel as well. It's in many ways a more personal look at one of the most famous physicists of the 20th century.

A 20. század egyik legnagyobb fizikusa híres volt kiapadhatatlan mesélő kedvéről. Ebben a könyvében a rövid, humoros történetek mellett első felesége, Arlene betegségének és halálának megrázó leírása olvasható, továbbá egy csokor élvezetes stílusban megírt családi levél. A második rész a Challenger űrhajó 1986-os katasztrófájával foglalkozik. Bemutatja Feynman viszontagságos részvételét a katasztrófa okait vizsgáló Rogers-bizottságban, és a pofonegyszerű kísérletet, mellyel demonstrálta, hogy szerinte mi okozta a tragédiát. A könyv képmellékletében a sokoldalú tudós meglepő tehetségről árulkodó rajzait is megcsodálhatjuk ( )

Feynman, Richard. “Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman”: Adventures of a Curious Character. As told to Ralph Leighton. 1985. Norton, 2018.
Several years before his death in 1988, Nobel-winning physicist Richard Feynman narrated some stories of his life to a friend with a tape recorder. Most of Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman is the result of these interviews. They do not create a full biography, but they do give some insight into aspects of Feynman’s personality. One realizes that he was almost always the smartest person in the room, even though he could be intimidated by the prestige of some of his colleagues. As a child he tinkered creatively with all things electronic, and one could imagine him being an excellent engineer, if he had not had such a powerful interest in the math of theoretical physics, where he made things as hands on as possible. His insistence on not accepting received wisdom until he had worked the problems out by his own methods offers a clue to his originality. His humor is everywhere apparent. He could be something of a smart-aleck and was an inveterate practical joker, cracking safes and picking locks in the paranoid environment of the Los Alamos. His satirical account of trying to talk to academic philosophers is hilarious, as is account of his trouble reading Shakespeare. But we also get some hint that music and art eventually became important to him. His chapter on how he learned to seduce women in bars suggests that he was a typical frat-boy of his era. His male chauvinism seems more playful than cruel, and he eventually became a defender of women physicists. We get little of his emotional life from these stories—how he felt about losing his first wife to tuberculosis or his divorce from his second wife. Near the end, he tells us how winning the Nobel Prize interfered with his ability to talk to his colleagues, why school textbooks and pedagogical methods in math and science are so dreadful, and what dangers lurk in what he calls “Cargo Cult Science”—a topic that seems more relevant to life in the twenty-first century than the twentieth. Feynman was, as Tom Wolfe called himself, “a man in full.” 5 stars. ( )

Great title for Feynman. He is a pretty funny guy. You can read between the lines for those quirks, but this is a nice example of an autobiographical essay. It sort of peters out at the end and doesn't end up going anywhere, but the ride was interesting. ( )

This has been on The List for a long time and finally took the time to read it. I am familiar with Feynmen's brilliance, and somewhat with his whimsy but this was enlightening. His revealed character flaws were incongruous with some of his strong character traits, but the last thing he would have wanted is deification so, warts and all, he was human. I liked the essays/articles/descriptions of his scientific investigations and his time at Los Alamos and Oak Ridge, and was entertained by his curiosity - safe-cracking? Love it!

More than anything, I liked I don’t know what’s the matter with people: they don’t learn by understanding; they learn by some other way–by rote, or something. Their knowledge is so fragile!Memorization is not understanding.

Anyway, this prompted me to pick up The Quotable Feynman, and I have decided to work my way through his massive three-volume lectures on physics. 42 years ago I started out majoring in physics, switching because I was too immature to understand that I had to have the ... understanding ... before I could get to the "good stuff". Time to close the circle. ( )
