From the Publisher. In this phenomenal national best seller, the Nobel Prize -winning physicist Richard P. Feynman recounts in his inimitable voice his adventures trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and Bohr and ideas on gambling with Nick the Greek, painting a naked female toreador, accompanying a ballet on his bongo drums and much else of an eyebrow-raising and hilarious nature.

The life and times of Nobel Prize-winner Richard Feynman, in his own words. Read it and learn why his playing the bongos may have been more important than his creating some of the first theoretical physics drawings. It taught me that creating stuff has common vectors, whether you’re writing theoretical physics or doing furniture design. There are also some very funny stories and some terrific advice about life.
