I love this book. Constructed from a series of interviews, it covers Richard Feynman's life from childhood to probably the late 1970's.
Clearly it's from his point of view, and only covers areas he felt like discussing, so there's very little about his marriage (although there is another book which has more detail on that), and nothing about the Challenger disaster (again, another book).
But the anecdotes are interesting, some are hilarious, and I've managed to get my son to read and enjoy this as well. His time with the Manhattan Project is a particular source of amusement, and his move to Brazil is another rich fountain of anecdotes.
The Big Bang Theory has probably brought his name to the attention of another generation of people.
You've probably got at least 2 series' worth of material in this book.

My best reading of 2016. Brilliant book, funny and full of learnings.
I'm no native English speaker and I had no problems following it.
I would recommend it to anyone interested (even slightly) in science, but as well to anyone who feels that he/she has to say something in this world.

A beautiful history of a man who always lived his life as he wanted and did it brilliantly!

Recommended on Radio 4, did not disappoint. An odd bloke but as physicist of unparalleled skill and ability you stand in awe of his achievements. Then there is the safe-cracking, bongo playing, practical joking and refusing to accept prejudice masquerading as "science" when sitting on the Educational Books Board. His treatment of the psychological assessment of the Draft Board makes "Alice's Restaurant" Group W bench seem almost logical.

A collection of essays from a thoroughly interesting individual who looks at the world from a different point of view than most.
