Richard P Feynman - What Do You Care What Other People Think (audiobook mp3)

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks; Unabridged edition (October 15, 2005)





One of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century, Richard Feynman possessed an unquenchable thirst for adventure and a great ability to tell the stories of his life. In one of the book¡¯s many stories we meet his first wife, Arlene, who taught him of love¡¯s mystery as she lay dying in a hospital while he worked nearby on the atomic bomb at Los Alamos. Feynman also discusses the investigation of the 1986 explosion of the Challenger space shuttle and his experiment that revealed the disaster¡¯s cause.







Review

A thoughtful companion volume to the earlier Surely You Are Joking Mr. Feynman!. Perhaps the most intriguing parts of the book are the behind-the-scenes descriptions of science and policy colliding in the presidential commission to determine the cause of the Challenger space shuttle explosion; and the scientific sleuthing behind his famously elegant O-ring-in-ice-water demonstration. Not as rollicking as his other memoirs, but in some ways more profound. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Roughly half of these 21 short, colloquial essays deal with Feynman's firsthand investigaton of the Challenger space-shuttle disaster. He casts himself in the role of intrepid detective, and the first-person singular pronoun keeps intruding on the worthwhile things he has to say about flight safety and lack of communication within NASA. An appendix offers his chilling technical observations on the shuttle's reliability or lack of it. The remaining pieces are mostly a blur of international conferences, purveying slight anecdotes. But two essays touch genuine depths of feeling: his tribute to his father, who taught him to cultivate a sense of wonder, and his account of his love affair with his first wife (who died). In this posthumous miscellany, theoretical physicist Feynman displays only sporadically the adventurousness that captivated readers of Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman.
