James Gleick does a great job exposing the brilliant mind of Richard Feynman and his life journey.
I certainly recommend this book to anyone interested in Feynman or 20th-century physics, or who just enjoys reading a well-written biography of an interesting person.
Gleick's conception of physics is quite accurate, and his writing style is sufficiently colourful, that this is one of the few books I always go back for passages.
Richard Feynman truly was a genius in physics. For scientists this is a must read book about one of the brightest and most insightful scientists of the 20th century. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Thomas Andert

I've read several books on this man and his work, but this was the best overall yet. Strongly recommend it.Published 4 days ago by H. S. Miller
This is a very excellent book. If one cannot understand some of the scientific material it's OK to kind of gloss over it. Read morePublished 8 days ago by hermanator
This was such a good book. I am not a scientist nor a mathematician but it held my interest to the very end.Published 12 days ago by K. Boyd
actually 4 1/2 - nothing's perfect. a good read, although some of the physics seemed a little jumbled. Also read Chaos some years ago - another enjoyable, informative read.Published 13 days ago by MWC
Remarkable book. Just enough physics to make it worthwhile and plenty of human emotions to make it a true biography about a most extraordinary person. Read morePublished 16 days ago by RichC
