"Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!"Audiobook CD - 1997
The Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist talks about his adventure-filled life in a memoir based on a series of taped discussions.
Richard Feynman, one of the world’s greatest theoretical physicists, thrived on adventure. His outrageous exploits once shocked a Princeton dean’s wife to exclaim: “Surely you’re joking, Mr. Feynman!”
In this phenomenal national bestseller, the Nobel Prize–winning physicist recounts in his inimitable voice his experiences 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, and much else of an eyebrow-raising and hilarious nature. Woven together with his views on science, Feynman’s life story is a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, eternal skepticism, and raging chutzpah.
The late Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist talks about his adventure-filled life in a memoir based on a series of transcribed taped discussions. Read by Raymond Todd. Book available.
