5.0 out of 5 stars The best overview of Feynman's thinking, January 24, 2000
This review is from: The Pleasure of Finding Things Out: The Best Short Works of Richard Feynman (Helix Books) (Hardcover)
I recommend this book to people who have never read Feynman before, and to those people who only know Feynman's funny stories.
This book is a good overview of Feynman's thinking and not merely a collection of his humorous anecdotes. 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. However, if you are only marginally familiar with Feynman or not familiar at all with him, I highly recommend it.
I believe some of the less than stellar reviews found here were written by Feynman fans who thought this book contained lots of new material. They are correct claiming there is not a lot of new material here for the well-read Feynman fan. However, for the unfamiliar who doesn't want to read everything he wrote, I believe this is the book to get.
If you are interested more in his humorous storytelling, as opposed to his ideas, then I recommend 'Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman' instead of this book.
