Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman

An auto-biography of Richard Feynman, available on Amazon. This was a great book, and the format of chronologically-ordered short-stories is very reader-friendly & digestible. I’d recommend it to any person who is at risk of taking themselves too seriously (thanks Barron Caster for lending it to me). Things to Imitate Dick (Richard) was naturally curious, worked very hard, but didn’t take himself too seriously. He would often find himself in unusual situations, and he would always do small pranks to make things interesting....
