To be perfectly honest, don't expect most of the book to be devoted to Richard Feynman. That said, in my opinion, the book does give an interesting insight on how Feynman was in everyday life near his end (e.g. his rivalry with Murray Gell-Mann).
For me, the most interesting aspect of the book is the struggle of the author to figure out if his future lies in fundamental research or not. It's a struggle I've myself experienced and I find this book to best portrait and explain it. I would strongly recommend this reading to all PhD students.
