Feynman in his own words,
By A Customer
This review is from: Don't You Have Time to Think? (Hardcover)
A must for Feynman fans!
An excellent book despite its appearance! It is fascinating to watch the development of R.P.F.s personality and confidence (compare his early letters to his 1st wife with his letters to his last). Having said that there are two letters to Arline (1st wife)that brought tears to this reviewers eye.
It is also an insight into the sort of demands on a famous scientist, with many and varying people and organisations wanting your opinion and approval / sanction. The letters after his receiving the Nobel prize are worth the price of the book alone.
Although the corespondence has been edited by his daughter it doesn't always strive to put R.P.F. in a good light.(But letters from his other amours are missing.)
Altogether a really enjoyable read and has altered my perception of R.P.F. (in his favour!)
