Few scientists have enthralled more people than Richard P. Feynman, the Nobel Prize winner and best-selling author of Six Easy Pieces and Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! Beloved for his engaging character and zest for life, he is an American icon. In this selection of letters, Feynman's towering genius and singular personality shine like dazzling stars.
A brilliant physicist who worked on the Manhattan Project, Feynman believed the excitement of discovery was matched by the bliss of sharing. That joy is evident here, whether Feynman's subject is quantum physics or the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. The letters also show a personal side to this extraordinary man, a man who dearly loved his wife and enthusiastically shared his thoughts with those who sought them.
Most of Feynman's personal correspondence has remained private for years. Now, at long last, the most personal reflections of this fascinating man can be relished by all.
"The Feynman adored by his colleagues and the public, exuberant, irreverent, and intelligent, comes back to life through his own words." (Booklist)
