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

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Duration: 11 hours 30 minutes

Summary:

Richard Feynman, one of the world's greatest theoretical physicists, thrived on adventure. His outrageous exploits once shocked a Princeton dean's wife to exclaim: "Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!"

In this phenomenal national bestseller, Feynman recounts in his inimitable voice his experiences 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. Woven together with his views on science, Feynman's life story is a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, eternal skepticism, and raging chutzpah.

"Raymond Todd gives an extraordinary performance bringing to evanescent life the amusing adventures of this Nobel prize-winning physicist....Refreshingly honest, iconoclastic, thought-provoking, this one-of-a-kind classic is a must for every collection."-Library Journal
