Amusing anecdotes about Feynman, told by Feynman. I found myself, though, questioning the portrayal as much as I would the autobiography of an internet influencer.

All the Feynman adventures offer a fascinating and unique perspective into the world of a theoretical physicist in end of 20th century. The filter that Feynman brings to this in addition, is that of a bit of a trouble making, womanizing, principled empiricist.

I enjoy the fiction, the world he creates is fascinating and comes to life despite some mismatch of values and the pretty clear exaggeration of some of his stories.

His accout of the investigation in the Challenger disaster is sound and important reading for any future engineer. Politics does not play well with risky engineering.… (lisätietoja)

Huh.

Feynman is clearly an interesting character and a significant influence in modern science. His antics are interesting is this collection, and It was just as interesting to travel back to a different era through this storytelling.

He does come across as a bit pompous at times, perhaps another blast from the past. Overall an interesting read.

Richard Feynman is definitely an admirable fellow. He's extremely intelligent and has an enviable work ethic. Some of the stories in this book are fascinating illuminations on times and places I know little about. His voice in prose is not very appealing to me, however.

I'm not sure what it is that bothers me about the way he talks or writes (I gather from the preface that these stories are essentially dicatations). Heather felt he was caddish, and it's clear that he had a fascination with women. For me, though, these elements of the stories are not that remarkable giving the age he was living through. Guys just seemed to act that way during the middle of the century. Maybe I felt like his casual tone was a bit forced.

He's obviously brilliant, but he also sees himself as a straight shooter that likes to cut through the usual tangle of academic obfuscation. I guess I still felt an undercurrent of arrogance along with a bit too much bragging. Maybe I just envy his achievements; I don't know.

In any case, the material is good and pretty consistently entertaining. The most valuable element for me was the window on mid-century academic life.
