I really enjoyed this book. A lot of reviews commented on how bad they felt the narrator was, but I don't agree. I felt he did a fine job. The stories Professor Feynman tells are fantastic!
The narrator was fabulous!! I cannot imagine another voice which could so perfectly convey the author.
That voice! I could listen to it for hours.
This was a fascinating study of the amazing potential of the human mind. Although I am not scientifically minded, I found this book to be inspiring as one contemplates the capability of the human mind and the intricacies of the Creator..
What a great great book. Highly recommended.
I've found a "hero" of sorts in Feynman and someone I will refer to in my mind when encountering the "cargo cult science" of our time.
The audiobook reading was also perfect and one feels like you are listening to Feynman read.
I enjoyed this book completely. Listening to Feyman's antics over the years was delightful and enlightening. Mr. Todd captured Feyman's personality exactly as I envisioned him.
I've read the book in dead tree edition many time, and found the antics and thoughts of Mr. Feynman inspiring and humorous. I was looking forward to diving back into these waters again with the audio version. However, this sort of book, composed of short vignettes and insights, comes off in a rapid fire motion with no time for story ambiance. This isn't a ding on Raymond Todd, who did a decent enough job. It's just that this is a book that should be savored, and in my opinion, read leisurely. You won't regret it.
This book was my first experience with audible - I m trying hard to identify if the story is poor or if the voice downgraded harshly the whole book. Smart guy, some unnecessary pranks, top universities life...stories that seems to be interesting, but after 5 minutes with that "l m- so - smart" voice its really a challenge not to give up on this book. I had high expectations on this book n on audible, I really feel sorry to write this kind of review.
Feynman's style and joy for life makes the reader want to be a physicist, artist, safe cracker, world traveler, gambler, and life of the party.
