Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!

A collection of short stories from an eccentric theoretical physicist.
6 out of 10
I have no criticisms of the book, although I'd love to have learned more about the inner workings of Feynman's mind. It's not going to teach you a deep and philosophical approach to life or make you look at the world very differently. But it's a fun read, especially if you're interested in science or teaching.
Richard Feynman

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.)
