Story:

I happen to read this book two years back and got hold of the book last week. This is one of the best books I have read in my life.


It is not jok'n in life.


I still believe that if this was given to me when I was 12 or 13 years old , I wouldn't have taken that silly in the way it is today.


By reading this book I found that the thinking is not “linear”. This reason why the Author was able to break outs of the box, and makes the profound breakthroughs that were his mark. One anecdote after another illustrates this in a most enjoyable and enlightening way.


The story of the lad who wanted to learn real mathematics. The librarian wouldn't allow him to borrow advanced math books, so he said they were for someone else, someone older. Reading book after book, he taught himself mathematics. He ended up learning some advanced math uniquely his way. Years later, while still in graduate school, he was recruited to work on the Manhattan project (which developed the atom bomb). When other mathematicians who used conventional math treatments were stumped, Feynman was able to make breakthrough using a math style unique to him-non-linear.


And I find that this was the birth of Quantum Mechanics, it is not linear. I enjoyed reading every page of this book.


He will start telling one story and will switch to an unrelated story, and then tell the ending of the first. The book would have appealed to me more if the writer had used a time line, and keeps his thoughts in the order that they happened. Feynman's writing style left something to be desired.


This is one of the must read book like that I have written.


Enjoy your reading.
