Samenvatting

What Do You Care What Other People Think? Further Adventures of a Curious Character is a captivating collection of reminiscences from freewheeling scientific genius Richard P. Feynman. Richard Feynman - Nobel Laureate, teacher and iconic intellect - possessed an unquenchable thirst for an adventure and an unparalleled gift for telling the extraordinary stories of his life. In this collection of short pieces Feynman describes everything from his love of beauty to college pranks to how his father taught him to think. He takes us behind the scenes of the space shuttle Challenger investigation, where he dramatically revealed the cause of the disaster with a simple experiment. And he tells us of how he met his beloved first wife Arlene, and their brief time together before her death. Sometimes intensely moving, sometimes funny, these writings are infused with Feynmans curiosity and passion for life. Feynmans voice echoes raw and direct through these pages the New York Times Outrageously gifted, iconoclastic, irrepressible . . . Richard Feynman still has the capacity to suprise Observer 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 If more scientists were like Feynman, the world really would be a better, and better understood, place Independent on Sunday Richard P.
