About this title:
Synopsis:
[Transcribed by Ralph Leighton]

[Read by Raymond Todd]

Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman possessed an unquenchable thirst for adventure and an unparalleled ability to tell the stories of his life. In these two perennially popular, bestselling memoir collections, Feynman weaves his views on modern science together with his outrageous life experiences a combustible mixture of intelligence, curiosity, skepticism, and chutzpah.

In Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! , Feynman recounts his adventures trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and Bohr, gambling with Nick the Greek, painting a naked female toreador, and much else of an eyebrow-raising and hilarious nature.

In What Do You Care What Other People Think? , Feynman introduces us to his first love, who lay dying in a nearby hospital while he worked on the atomic bomb at Los Alamos, and shares his brilliant experiment which revealed the cause of the space shuttle Challenger's explosion.


About the Author:
Richard P. Feynman (1918-1988) earned a BS from MIT and a PhD from Princeton. From 1942 to 1945, he assisted with the development of the atomic bomb. He then taught at Cornell and Caltech, where he contributed to the theories of superfluidity and quarks. He shared the 1965 Nobel Prize in Physics for work on the theory of quantum electrodynamics.
