The Pleasure of Finding Things Out product reviews

This priceless collection of the best short works of rule-breaking genius Richard Feynman shows his passion for knowledge and sense of fun at their most infectious.

The revealing, inspiring and hugely enjoyable pieces here span a lifetime of enthusiasm for discovering how the world works - including uproarious tales of early student experiments; safecracking and outwitting US censors during the Second World War; his first lecture as a graduate student (to an audience including Albert Einstein); his famous report on the Challenger space shuttle disaster; and memories of the father who delighted in showing him the world and sparked his insatiable curiosity.

OK, this book is not for Joe Public. If you don't know who Richard P Feynman was, you should not consider reading this book. The foreword is daunting enough, but the body of the book is truely ultra-highbrow.

As the man who has been creditted with rewriting the theory of Quantum Electrodynamics, Richard Feynman is truely the genius of our modern age. From humble beginnings to greatness, through the sheer power of his intellect, Feynman created a new lens with which to study the universe, a lens of numbers, dimensions and fundamental particles.

His method of taking these esoteric subjects and understanding them so totally that he can explain them in (relatively) simple terms, is just astounding. Feynman can take some of the most brain-bending science and convert it into something anyone with a reasonable elementary science grounding can grasp.

Overall, I was entranced. This is astounding stuff, worthy of a read indeed. Again, it's not for the Average Joe, it's a book for those with a passion for physical science in it's wonderous diversity. Simply put, I just loved it. :)

Product reviews for listing 4735: Fishtales Far-Fetched and Foul -  Author: Sherryl Jordan

Product image for Fishtales Far-Fetched and FoulFour fabulous fishing stories, from the funny to the fairly outrageous!

From a story about an eel that grows too big for the house, to one that teaches a cruel lad a lesson he'll never forget, to a story of a mystery monster with lashing tentacles and a fondness for snitching fishing rods, Sherryl Jordan's collection of fantastic fishy tales holds appeal across the board.
