Why You Should Download This Audiobook: Richard Feynman is somewhat of a superstar at Audible. We have a wealth of material from him, and he's popular with both our technical and editorial staff. He's one of the first scientists to popularize subjects one thinks of as difficult, like physics. This is significant because since Feynman's death, introducing science to the layman has been a torch taken up most admirably by Stephen Hawking and Brian Greene. Feynman's final autobiographical collection contains pieces that are by turns touching and tragic, and not to be missed.
One of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century, Richard Feynman possessed an unquenchable thirst for adventure and an unparalleled ability to tell the stories of his life. What Do You Care What Other People Think? is Feynman's last literary legacy, prepared with his friend and fellow drummer, Ralph Leighton. Among the book's many tales we meet Feynman's first wife, Arlene, who taught him of love's irreducible mystery as she lay dying in a hospital bed while he worked nearby on the atomic bomb at Los Alamos. We are also given a fascinating narrative of the investigation of the space shuttle Challenger's explosion in 1986, and we relive the moment when Feynman revealed the disaster's cause by an elegant experiment: dropping a ring of rubber into a glass of cold water and pulling it out, misshapen.
