Richard P. Feynman, winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, thrived on outrageous adventures. In this lively work that "can shatter the stereotype of the stuffy scientist" (Detroit Free Press), Feynman recounts his experiences trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and cracking the uncrackable safes guarding the most deeply held nuclear secrets--and much more of an eyebrow-raising nature. In his stories, Feynman's life shines through in all its eccentric glory--a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, and raging chutzpah.

Included for this edition is a new introduction by Bill Gates.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A storyteller in the tradition of Mark Twain. Feynman proves once again that it is possible to laugh out loud and scratch your head at the same time.--K. C. Cole
Quintessential Feynman--funny, brilliant, bawdy...enormously entertaining.
Books like this are temptations--to give up reading and devote life to rereading...The book is a litmus paper: anyone who can read it without laughing out loud is bad crazy.
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.
Feynman is legendary among his colleagues for his brilliance and his eccentricity...It's not hard to smile all the way through.
