Richard Feynman, who won the Nobel Prize in physics, was one of the world's greatest theoretical physicists and thrived on outrageous adventure. His eyebrow-raising behavior once shocked a Princeton dean's wife to exclaim: "Surely you're joking Mr Feynman!" Feynamn was surely the only person in history to solve the mystery of liquid helium, to be commissioned to paint a naked female toreador, and to crack the uncrackable safes guarding the atomic bomb's most critical secrets. He traded ideas with Einstein and Bohr, discussed gambling odds with Nick the Greek, and accompanied a ballet on the bongo drums. Here, woven with his scintillating views on modern science, is Feynman's astonishing life story- a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, eternal skepticism, and raging chutzpah.

"A storyteller in the tradition of Mark Twain. He proves once again that it is possible to laugh out loud and scratch your head at the same time."- The New York Times Book Review
