What Do You Care What Other People Think?: Further Adventures of a Curious Character Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

One of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century, Richard Feynman possessed an unquenchable thirst for adventure and an unparalleled ability to tell the stories of his life. What Do You Care What Other People Think? is Feynmans last literary legacy, prepared with his friend and fellow drummer, Ralph Leighton.

Among the books many tales, we meet Feynmans first wife, Arlene, who taught him loves irreducible mystery as she lay dying in a hospital bed, while he worked nearby on the atomic bomb at Los Alamos. We are also given a fascinating chronicle of the investigation of the space shuttle Challengers explosion in 1986, and we relive the moment when Feynman revealed the disasters cause by an elegant experiment: dropping a ring of rubber into a glass of cold water and pulling it out, misshapen.
