Feynman had a fantastic sense of humor, and his memoirs of his Manhattan Project days roil with fun despite his later misgivings about nuclear weapons. Though one or two pieces are a bit hard to follow for the nontechnical reader, for the most part the book is easygoing and engaging on a personal rather than a scientific level. Freeman Dyson's foreword and editor Jeffrey Robbins's introductions to each essay set the stage well and are respectful without being worshipful. Though Feynman has been gone now for many years, his work lives on in quantum physics, computer design, and nanotechnology; like any great scientist, he asked more questions than he answered, to give future generations the pleasure of finding things out. --Rob Lightner --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
The book is interesting and easy to read.
If you have read many of his other works and you are expecting a great amount of new material, then this book will probably be a disappointment.
This book, and others by him, are must reads for anyone interested in popular science, hard science, or simply great non-fiction writing.

I hate writing probably more than Feynman. :)
The only thing better than reading his words, is actually hearing them from him through video and/or audio.
