Amatuer reviewer. Recommend a book to me.
Great enjoyable stories.
Yes, but I had to do it in 2.
I'm not sure if it only affected my download, but in Chapter 35 12:35 into the audio, it skips. I'm not sure by how much it skips because I don't own the book inorder to verfy but it does. I would be willy to raise the Performance Rating up a star if fixed.
I wish all scientists approached understanding the way Dr. Feynman did. Subtract pomp and posturing from science to get to something truly interesting.
This book tells a series of captivating stories. It's easy to follow and very entertaining.
Clearly an amazing and quizative mind but damn, it reads like a train of consciousness thats completely come off the tracks.
The man's education, and perhaps even more so intellect, yielded him the most interesting opportunities such that if a distracted student was mature enough to read it, he/she would realize the doors that open for a person who understood or really learn the principles taught in college. And to act on the experiences we all crave to live a fuller life.
No B.S. reviews. I'll never soft-pedal bad writing or inept narration.
I had hoped for a book on theoretical physics, but instead found Richard Feynman himself. The book is extremely entertaining, and Feynman is a character. The reading is fabulous--as if Feynman were telling the story himself. The book rambles a bit (since the author really isn't trying to make any specific kind of point) but it's a fun listen, even in lieu of my hoped-for book on physics. In fact, there's almost no physics at all in the book. Even when Feynman tells the story of his winning the Nobel prize, he never mentions anything about the work for which the prize was awarded! So, for all you physicists out there--lighten up, grab some bongo drums, and listen to "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!"
The voice performance was one of the best I've come across. He did accents for various characters, and added vocalizations for things such as instruments to aid understanding. I thought it was well done. The story itself was very good too.
