About this title


Sykes is a documentary filmmaker for BBC TV who grew to know the great physicist while making two films about his life. He has compiled selections from Feynman's writings and other sources and arranged them in topical chapters, supplemented with photos. Those who've read Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman and What Do You Care What Other People Think? will find much that is redundant with those books, but the compilation is nevertheless a worthwhile and engaging presentation of the man and his work. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
