Reviews

"A storyteller in the tradition of Mark Twain. Feynman proves once again that it is possible to laugh out loud and scratch your head at the same time." -- K. C. Cole - New York Times Book Review
"Quintessential Feynman-funny, brilliant, bawdy...enormously entertaining." -- The New Yorker
"Books like this are temptations-to give up reading and devote life to rereading...The book is a litmus paper: anyone who can read it without laughing out loud is bad crazy." -- Los Angeles Times Book Review
"A chain reaction is not a bad analogy for Feynman's life. From a critical mass of gray matter it goes off in all directions, producing both heat and light." -- Time
"Feynman is legendary among his colleagues for his brilliance and his eccentricity...It's not hard to smile all the way through." -- Newsweek
