  • WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY BILL GATES

    In this warm, insightful portrait of the Winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1965, we see the wisdom, humour and curiosity of Richard Feynman through a series of conversations with his friend Ralph Leighton.

    Winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1965, Richard Feynman was one of the world's greatest theoretical physicists, but he was also a man who fell, often jumped, into adventure. An artist, safecracker, practical joker and storyteller, Feynman's life was a series of combustible combinations made possible by his unique mixture of high intelligence, unquenchable curiosity and eternal scepticism.

    Over a period of years, Feynman's conversations with his friend Ralph Leighton were first taped and then set down as they appear here, little changed from their spoken form, giving a wise, funny, passionate and totally honest self-portrait of one of the greatest men of our age.

Richard P. Feynman (1918-1988) was one of this century's most brilliant theoretical physicists and original thinkers. Books by Feynman in Penguin include QED (1990 - 58,000 copies), Six Easy Pieces (1998 - 27,000 copies), and Six Not-so-Easy Pieces (1999 - 10,000 copies).
