Genius: Richard Feynman and Modern Physics

James Gleick

4 Reviews

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Popular science

The life of Richard Feynman and the story of modern physics itself.

Richard Feynman was the most brilliant and influential physicist of our time. Architect of quantum theories, enfant terrible of the atomic bomb project, caustic inquisitor on the space shuttle commission, ebulent bongo-player and storyteller - Feynman played a bewildering assortment of roles in the science of the post-war era.

A brilliant interweaving of Richard Feynman's colourful life and a detailed and accessible account of his theories and experiments.
