Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! by Richard Feynman
Filled with personal antcedotes from the late genius Richard Feynman, this autobiography was a pleasure to read. Professor Feynman’s delightful personality shown brightly through the stories, from his childhood days fixing radios to later days exploring art work. His genuine curiosity was an inspiration and his sense of humor should remind all of us to take pleasure in your daily activities.
The book itself was short; too short if you ask me. Richard Feynman is a character that I would listen to hours on end without the slightest loss of concentration. He lived a great, robust life filled with travels and experiences that everyone would agree epitomizes a rich existence. If one day I could accomplish a fraction of what Feynman did I could die a happy man.
