Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!

Richard Feynman
I'd have loved to learn more about the inner workings of Feynman's mind. This book won't give you any deep insights or make you look at the world very differently. But it's a fun read, especially if you're interested in science or teaching.

This is a collection of short stories told by Richard P. Feynman, an eccentric and highly celebrated theoretical physicist. He talks about everything from bongo playing to safe cracking, from picking up women to his work on the Manhattan Project, from his encounters with Albert Einstein to arguing with the government over tiny receipts. I couldn’t put it down!

(Sidenote: Some people wonder if Rick from Rick and Morty is based on Feynman. After reading this book, I can see why.)

Interesting Tidbits

So… yeah, nothing too deep. Still a fun read.
