The book gives you a glimpse into a world which ought to be yours and mine as well, if not quite up front, then at least from as close as possible. Its a world of continuing and satifying curiosity, and where it may lead. It is also a rare book, because many of those so gifted are more and more isolated, or less able to tell their story so well.
The gap which opens up this way diminishes the sense of life of many and may even lead to distrust and hate.
Feynman bridges this gap in a magnificent style, ease and pleasure in being alive.
