    Inhaltsangabe

    With his characteristic eyebrow-raising behavior, Richard P. Feynman once provoked the wife of a Princeton dean to remark, "Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!" But the many scientific and personal achievements of this Nobel Prize-winning physicist are no laughing matter. In addition to solving the mystery of liquid helium, Feynman has been commissioned to paint a naked female toreador and asked to crack the uncrackable safes guarding the atomic bomb's most critical secrets. He has traded ideas with Einstein and Bohr, discussed gambling odds with Nick the Greek, and accompanied a ballet on the bongo drums. Here, woven with his scintillating views on modern science, Feynman relates the defining moments of his accomplished life.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "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)

    A beautiful mind

    Witty and often times surprisingly unprofessorial episodes, stories and musings of a truly interested and alert thinking mind that often times amused me, educated me and restored my faith in science for if this is what scientists are like, forget about bank of Sweden prices, this is what a true teacher of life should be be like. Curious throughout his life!

    unterhaltsam und informativ

    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    Man bekommt einen guten Einblick in Feynmanns verrücktes Leben und man lernt auch einiges, zum Beispiel über die Qualität von Schulbüchern oder dem Knacken von Schränken, welche Unterlagen zum Bau von Atombomben enthalten.

    Faszinierende Anekdoten eines Physikers

    Ich selbst bin faszinierend von Richard Feynman was mich bezüglich dieses Hörbuchs voreingenommen macht. Es handelt sich bei diesem Buch um Episodenweise Erzählungen und Anekdoten aus Feynmans Leben von Kindheit bis ins Erwachsenenalter. Die Geschichten sind schön anzuhören und geben einen Einblick in die Denk- und Lebensweise, dieses etwas anderen Physikers und beinhalten dabei einiges, was man von einem solchen Naturwissenschaftler wohl eher nicht erwartet. Der Sprecher vertont die Geschichten in jedem Fall authentisch und angenehm zum Hören. Klare Empfehlung meinerseits also!

    Gruß Matthias

    Lovely

    Such a lovely guy. A bit crazy, a tad genius, and very honest and outspoken. Narration is also spot on.

    Must hear for every physically interested...

    ... All these stories about and from feynman show a great picture of a curious and open minded person that had loads of fun during his life and with what he was doing...
    Inspirational and heart lifting book and a great reader made me enjoy this audio book a lot... Highly recommended...

    The reader spoils it for me

    When I started listening to this audiobook I was hooked. Clearly the author, Richard P. Feynman, has an exquisit sense of humour and it is so much fun to listen to his nerdy Stories from his time as a student as well as his genius in everyday situations.
    Unfortunately, the longer I was listening, the more I was noticing the very unfortunate choice of the reader. When there is tension to build up while telling a story or dryness to apply when making a humorous remark, the reader reliably fails to implement any of it but carries on in his monotonous style like a 10 year old schoolboy, failing to trace an arc for more than one sentence. I really do not understand, how that can be approved with so many good voice actors out there nowadays. I could not get over the first half even, so that I will probably get the book and read it myself in order to get the immersion and comic and knowledge that the book itself offers.

    Worth the time

    Wide range of lessons and principles far beyond just the field of physics. Humorously written and easy to binge. Plus great narrator who's engaged in what he does.

    Awesome narrator

    Best narrator I've ever listened to. Even if you already read the book, it's worth just because of the narrator. He has such a lively and entertaining way to read.
    The book itself is also very interesting and entertaining.
