About the Author

Richard P. Feynman (1918-1988) earned a BS from MIT and a PhD from Princeton. From 1942 to 1945, he assisted with the development of the atomic bomb. He then taught at Cornell and Caltech, where he contributed to the theories of superfluidity and quarks. He shared the 1965 Nobel Prize in Physics for work on the theory of quantum electrodynamics.

Ralph Leighton is a biographer, film producer, and friend of the late physicist Richard Feynman. Leighton's recordings of Feynman became the basis for the books Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! and What Do You Care What Other People Think?, which were later combined into the hardcover anniversary edition Classic Feynman: All the Adventures of a Curious Character.

Feynman's voice echoes raw and direct through these pages.--James Gleick "New York Times Book Review"
One final, welcome jolt from Mr. Feynman...There are a great many things for all of us in this book.--Peter Gorner "Chicago Tribune"
There is nothing obtuse or difficult about [this] book. Indeed, Feynman's rendering of such a potentially complex subject as the Challenger disaster is straightforward, lucid, and accessible.-- "San Francisco Chronicle"
One of the greatest minds of the twentieth century...[He] was also stubborn, irreverent, playful, intensely curious and highly original in practically everything he did.-- "New York Review of Books"
A gentler book [than "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!"], and for those interested in the man, a more substantial one.--Bettyann Kevles "Los Angeles Times"
