Beschreibung

With his characteristic eyebrow-raising behavior, Richard P. Feynman once provoked the wife of a Princeton dean to remark, "Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!" But the many scientific and personal achievements of this Nobel Prize-winning physicist are no laughing matter. In addition to solving the mystery of liquid helium, Feynman has been commissioned to paint a naked female toreador and asked to crack the uncrackable safes guarding the atomic bomb's most critical secrets. He has traded ideas with Einstein and Bohr, discussed gambling odds with Nick the Greek, and accompanied a ballet on the bongo drums. Here, woven with his scintillating views on modern science, Feynman relates the defining moments of his accomplished life.

Kritikerstimmen

"A chain reaction is not a bad analogy for Feynman's life. From a critical mass of gray matter it goes off in all directions, producing both heat and light." (Time)

A beautiful mind

Witty and often times surprisingly unprofessorial episodes, stories and musings of a truly interested and alert thinking mind that often times amused me, educated me and restored my faith in science for if this is what scientists are like, forget about bank of Sweden prices, this is what a true teacher of life should be be like. Curious throughout his life!

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Man bekommt einen guten Einblick in Feynmanns verrücktes Leben und man lernt auch einiges, zum Beispiel über die Qualität von Schulbüchern oder dem Knacken von Schränken, welche Unterlagen zum Bau von Atombomben enthalten.
