Genius: Richard Feynman and Modern Physics Summary


For nearly 50 years, until his death in 1988, aged 70, Richard Feynman's discoveries lay at the heart of the development of modern physics. Always controversial, Feynman (whom a colleague described as being like a combination of Groucho Marx and Alfred Einstein) was a key physicist from his days as part of the atom-bomb-making team at Los Alamos in the early 1940s, until his discovery of the reason for the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster 40 years later. This book combines Feynman's life-story with an account of his thought and its context.
