Feynman’s revolutionary discoveries and pioneering work in the fields of quantum theory and its link to the theory of relativity speak for themselves. Throughout his life he paved the way to groundbreaking insights that help us understand the world we live in, work for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1965. This biography highlights aspects of both Feynman’s professional and personal life by telling the story of a charismatic public speaker and gifted teacher who was allergic to formalities and authorities. The book also unveils some of Feynman’s subversive ideas as well as guiding the reader to a deeper understanding of his contributions to physics.
