Funny, but a little bit off-putting,
This review is from: Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! (Adventures of a Curious Character) (Paperback)
Truth is sometimes funnier than fiction. This book proves it.
Unfortunately there are a few parts this book could have done without. One chapter that starts out trying to sound anecdotal ends up making the point that women will only sleep with you if you treat them poorly. Other parts of the book make him sound incredibly pompus. For example, after taking an art class he complains about not being taken seriously as an artist because of his physics background. He brags about the fact that he brainstorms in seedy strip joints, apparently he thinks this makes him cool.
It was too bad really, because there are a lot of funny things in this book.
