Biography

'He is everything you want and expect a scientist to be: charming, sceptical, funny, blindingly intelligent ... confirms one's suspicion that Feynman was probably the coolest scientist who ever lived' Guardian One of the world's greatest theoretical physicists and a Nobel laureate, Richard Feynman was also a man who fell, often jumped, into adventure. An artist, safe-cracker, practical joker and storyteller, his life was a series of combustible combinations made possible by his unique mixture of high intelligence, unquenchable curiosity and eternal scepticism.
