Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!

By Richard P. Feynman, Ralph Leighton

Brief description

Richard Feynman (1918-1988), winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, thrived on outrageous adventures. Here he recounts in his inimitable voice his experience trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and Bohr and ideas on gambling with Nick the Greek; cracking the uncrackable safes guarding the most deeply held nuclear secrets; painting a naked female toreador - and much else of an eyebrow-raising nature.

In short, here is Feynman's life in all its eccentric glory - a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, and raging chutzpah. (Source)

Why read this

As we grow up we tend to stop wondering about the world and blend within the fabric of our society. It's quite an experience to see a great mind questioning things and having fun, at any age - pretty much with a child curiosity. Read this if you find your life being a bit monochrome or you simply want to smile browsing through short and funny stories. You will also find some questions and interesting explanations to how things work in love and the universe we exist in.

My experience

First, I found this book on Tim Ferris Show. After I heard few more people mentioning it, I did purchased the book on kindle and had an enormous pleasure reading through.
