"A rare, jewel-like biography... terrifically readable. It achieves an almost perfect balance between the physicist's work and his life.. Gleick is a consummate craftsman."- Washington Post Book World

To his colleagues, Richard Feynman was not so much a genius as he was a full-blown magician: someone who "does things that nobody else could do and that seem completely unexpected." The path he cleared for 20th century physics led from making of the atomic bomb to a Nobel Prize- winning theory of quantum electrodynamics to his devastating expose of the Challenger space shuttle disaster. At the same time, the ebullient Feynman established a reputation as an eccentric showman, a master safe cracker and bongo player, and a wizard of seduction.

Now James Gleick, author of the bestselling Chaos, unravels the dense skein of Feynman's thought as well as the paradoxes of his character in a biography- w/c was nominated for a National Book Award- of outstanding lucidity and compassion.
