Richard Feynman (1918-1988) thrived on outrageous adventures. In the phenomenal national bestsellers "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!" and "What Do You Care What Other People Think?" the Nobel Prize-winning physicist recounted in an inimitable voice his adventures 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, solving the mystery of the Challenger disaster, and much else of an eyebrow-raising, hugely entertaining, and astounding nature. One of the most influential and creative minds of recent history, Feynman also possessed an unparalleled ability as a storyteller, a delightful coincidence celebrated in this special omnibus edition of his classic stories. Now packaged with an hour-long audio CD of the 1978 "Los Alamos from Below" lecture, Classic Feynman offers readers a chance to finally hear a great tale in the orator's own voice.… (mais)

Feynman at his most bumptious and self-congratulatory. Some fun remarks about safe-cracking, though. ( )
  themulhern | May 3, 2015 |
Classics from Feynman's earlier autobiographical works arranged in roughly chronological order. A bonus CD of some of the source material is included, and is well worth the price of admission. Feynman was hilarious to listen to, a born raconteur. Fun collection that's light on the science and heavy on the anecdotes. Recommended. ( )

Excellent collection of anecdotes about Feynman's life and his observations. Highly recommended to glimpse the "human side" of one of the 20th Century's top physicists. ( )

Incredibly good and the CD is better than any comedy album you have ever heard. Why aren't there more smart people like Feynman? ( )

I was taken in and swindled. Oh, I wasn’t ripped off that much, and it was my own fault, but I fell for it just the same.

This book represents a combination of two of Feynman’s most famous books – “Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman!” and “What do YOU Care What Other People Think?” That’s where I got taken. My fault. I thought it was a new collection.

But, I’ll get over it. You see, it gave me an excuse to revisit these stories. Feynman is definitely an interesting character, and these stories (by combining them, now presented in chronological order) provide the full flavor. Whether it is the stories of Los Alamos during the war or Brazil while becoming part of a samba school or becoming a safecracker or playing the bongos or (fill in your other favorite part here), the picture is clear that this is something different – a creative, genius (oxymoronic far too many times) who was unafraid to take on anything that interested him.

And when was the last time you read a book by/about a physicist where you dog-eared pages to just remember what was said? (In my case “You know, what they think of you is so fantastic, it’s impossible to live up to it. You have no responsibility to live up to it” and a longer passage about education and the length of the Chinese emperor’s nose that I won’t go into here.)

Okay, maybe I wasn’t taken. Did I mention this edition also has a glorious CD with Feynman’s speech on what he did in Los Alamos? That is worth the price of admission all by itself. So, if you don’t have anything by Feynman – this is a perfect place to start. If you already have the other two volumes, maybe think twice, but it is a great excuse to revisit and to here the man speak himself. ( )
