Having read "what do you care what other people think", Feinman's other book, this was just as rewarding in its simplicity and joyous look at the world and the people on it. Too bad such characters only come to the surface long after they are needed. Looking at the world from another angle is just what we need, right now also. His anecdotes are funny and his tone is never too serious but still he is.

Richard Feynman is a wonderful storyteller. This book is a great recounting of his early childhood, his education and how he ended up where he did in life. His stories are hilarious as they are told in an arrogant yet self-deprecating manner. His humorous insight into the good and bad parts of his life is very endearing.

A very enjoyable reading experience. If you want to read about the life and times of a truly remarkable American Physicist, then this book is for you. Wonderful insights into events in his life and how his perceptions and thinking about various topics impacted his actions. Highly recommended.
