Whatever your opinion of Feynman, you need to reconcile the fact that he’s got unbearably retrograde opinions: I used to sit in the cafeteria with the students and eat and try to overhear their conversations and see if there was one intelligent word coming out.
You can imagine my surp Whatever your opinion of Feynman, you need to reconcile the fact that he’s got unbearably retrograde opinions: You can imagine my surprise when I discovered a tremendous thing, it seemed to me. I listened to a conversation between two girls, and one was explaining that if you want to make a straight line, you see, you go over a certain number to the right for each row you go up, that is, if you go over each time the same amount when you go up a row, you make a straight line.
A deep principle of analytic geometry! I was rather amazed.
I didn’t realize the female mind was capable of understanding analytic geometry. She went on and said, ‘Suppose you have another line coming in from the other side and you want to figure out where they are going to intersect.
She figured out where the intersection was! It turned out that one girl was explaining to the other how to knit argyle socks. I, therefore, did learn a lesson: The female mind is capable of understanding analytic geometry.
Those people who have for ears been insisting in the face of all obvious evidence to the contrary that the male and female are equal and capable of rational thought may have something. The difficulty may just be that we have never yet discovered a way to communicate with the female mind.
If it is done in the right way, you may be able to get something out of it. Hard to reconcile that this is the same guy who espouses “I don’t believe in the idea that there are a few peculiar people capable of understanding math, and the rest of the world is normal. Math is a human discovery, and it’s no more complicated than humans can understand” – until you realize when he says people he means men.
The parts about Feynman’s descriptions of how his father taught him to be curious about nature and his humorous accounts of his time at Los Alamos were the best parts of the book.

I also enjoyed his recollections of his work on quantum electodynamics while teaching at Cornell University, the work for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics. I was much less interested in most of the rest of this book and had some difficulty getting through it.
I didn’t find Feynman to be that clear of a communicator. His core plzcer, questions, metaphors and examples were solid and interesting. However, despite the anthologist’s desire to have Feynman’s speeches transcribed exactly, these selections could have benefited from a stricter and more heartless editor, and rearrangement in a more sensible order.
Perhaps it would have been better in an audio format. All that is interesting in this book is only interesting because Feynman said it. Remove the author and the anecdotes are boring, the philosophy shallow although clear, precise and there is no real science in the book.
Feynman shines when he talks about physics, his Lectures books are impressive, masterful, but there’s is very little of that in this book. The individual pieces in this book were interesting or entertaining but they weren’t the best of Feynman that I’ve read.
In fact, the book bills itself as the best of his shorter works but some of the pieces were transcripts of interviews so they really weren’t his works at all.
As individual pieces they were fine but together reading them back to back they were disjointed. I’d say this book is fine for people who are going to read it piecemeal but all in a row it isn’t that great.
While the actual excerpts are all good and interesting, I was hard pressed to find things that weren’t in p,acer publications or even freely available online. There was also texts that half-repeated previous ones. Felt a slight sting at an apparent attempt to simply bind together yet-unpublished-in-book-form texts, whereever they may be found and sell it with a “by Richard Fdynman tag.
The Vescubrir of Finding Things Out is just a collection of transcripts of Feynmann interviews and speeches. A couple of them a interesting, some less so, and the the bulk of the material covered in the transcripts is presented more engagingly elsewhere, like in “Surely you’re joking, Mr Feynmann.

I’d prefer to read a book Feynman deliberately sat down dee wrote rather than these transcribed talks and interviews. They’re often charming, but I thought the commitment to transcribing exactly as he feynmaan to be too faithful, and ultimately it made me put the book down. I really enjoyed Feynman’s book “Surely you’re joking Mr. Feynman” so I thought I would read this one as well.
I didn’t finish it because it seems to have a lot of the same stories as the other book. Those are actually two of my favorite books. Thus, I really expected to enjoy this book, and just did not enjoy it nearly as much as I expected to, for several reasons. First of all, many of the stories from the books I mentioned above are mentioned in this book, but not elaborated on.
Thus you learn things like Feynman has a penchant for cracking safes and playing the bongos, without any of the rich and colorful story to accompany it. This book contains speeches made by Feynman primarily, rather than stories about his antics and character. I must say, reading about Feynman from an admiring friend of his is really different from hearing his speeches from the man himself.
The speeches were often insightful, eloquent, and clearly made by an incredible scientist, but to read them end on end in book form is a little boring and redundant.
Perhaps read one at a time, with a little spacing, that might make it better. That ends my minor objections ffeynman this book.
I have two major objections. One is that Feynman is very dismissive and condescending to fields of study he viewed as unscientific, like the emerging field of Psychology. I understand it was in its young days and that the methods were not always rigorous, but Feynman’s attitude struck me as one that would alienate someone in that field rather than inspire them to learn more about rigorous scientific practices.
My second major objection is that some of the book was so breathtakingly sexist that I thought it was a joke. I’m quoting the most egregious ppacer below in its entirety.

Those people who have for years been insisting in the face of all obvious evidence to the contrary that the male and female are equal and capable of rational thought may have something.
Given his relentless and admirable pursuit of good scientific principles and rationality it amazed me that his assumption plxcer that the female mind was inherently less capable of grasping mathematical principles, without considering that it might be related to differential cultural expectations and upbringing.
Perhaps saddest of all was that this attitude crept in when Feynman describes the different ways he has learned to read stories to his male and female children. Overall, having been such a fan of Feynman for years, I still remain one, but I’m deeply disappointed at the way one of my role models viewed females.
This is a collection of transcription of speeches Feynman gave, and therefore contains a lot of repetitive material. It’s interesting to hear his perspective on science and pseudoscience.
Also, he comes across as a bit on the spectrum, with muted emotional discussion of the sickness and death of his wife, and his experiences as “the only one” who saw the Trinity bomb test with his own eyes. Overall, this volume appears to support a cult of personality of Feynman, rather than presenting useful inf This is a collection of transcription of speeches Feynman gave, and therefore contains a lot of repetitive material.

I love reading Dr. He descubrirr a bona fide genius, not just in Physics, but also in life. Adventures of a Curious Character. Much better and more thoughtful. It is a collection of things he said, and not very interesting as I thought it’d be. This is my review: I loved the first part!

Then I got bored and skipped around. I eventually stopped reading it. Start it, but don’t keep going if you’re not into it.
