Helpful Score: 2
An interesting collection of essays, interviews and speeches of Feynman, many of which have an emphasis on the philosophy of the scientific method. I was particularly interested in the chapters on Los Alamos and nanotechnology. The chapter containing Feynman's report on the Challenger accident was a sad reminder of the bureaucratic bungling leading to that disaster.

A very intelligent and intelligible physicist and teacher. This is a compilation of some of his best layman accessible work.

Feynman was such a one-off! I would have loved to be a student at Cal Tech, just to sit in on these lucid lectures. And what information junkie can resist a title like this! I couldn't.

Richard Feynman fans will love this book. His insight and perspective are obvious in this collection of essays. Thank you, Richard Feynman. With you as my guide, it is indeed a pleasure finding things out.
