Book SynopsisRichard Feynman (1918-1988) thrived on outrageous adventures. In the phenomenal national bestsellers Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! and What Do You Care What Other People Think? the Nobel Prize-winning physicist recounted in an inimitable voice his adventures trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and Bohr and ideas on gambling with Nick the Greek, painting a naked female toreador, accompanying a ballet on his bongo drums, solving the mystery of the Challenger disaster, and much else of an eyebrow-raising, hugely entertaining, and astounding nature. One of the most influential and creative minds of recent history, Feynman also possessed an unparalleled ability as a storyteller, a delightful coincidence celebrated in this special omnibus edition of his classic stories. Now packaged with an hour-long audio CD of the 1978 Los Alamos from Below lecture, Classic Feynman offers readers a chance to finally hear a great tale in the orator's own voice.
