Richard Feynman - 'Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!': Adventures of a Curious Character

from the publisher:
The outrageous exploits of one of this century's greatest scientific minds and a legendary American original.

In this phenomenal national bestseller, the Nobel Prize­winning physicist Richard P. Feynman recounts in his inimitable voice his adventures trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and Bohr and ideas on gambling with Nick the Greek, painting a naked female toreador, accompanying a ballet on his bongo drums and much else of an eyebrow-raising and hilarious nature.

"Quintessential Feynman--funny, brilliant, bawdy . . . enormously entertaining."--The New Yorker

"Proves once again that it is possible to laugh out loud and scratch your head at the same time."--New York Times Book Review

"Buzzes with energy, anecdote and life. It almost makes you want to become a physicist."--Science Digest
