I just did a fun interview with Lawrence Krauss for Point of Inquiry--airing Monday--and to prepare, I got to read his new scientific biography of Richard Feynman,
Being a non-physics wonk, I can't say that I fully understood *everything* that Feynman accomplished, but that didn't make the book any less illuminating in its depiction of this fascinating, and brilliant, scientific character. It's not that no one has written on Feynman before--it's just that having a top physicist do a scientific biography of Feynman's accomplishments is something pretty unique. In advance of the show, then, I want to recommend the book--it just went on sale this week. Check it out here.
