Der Nobelpreisträger als mitreißender Geschichtenerzähler Dieses unglaublich witzige Buch dreht sich rund um den Menschen Feynman, der mit Anekdoten und Geschichten aus der Schulzeit, aus seiner Zeit in Los Alamos und schließlich als Professor aufwartet. Aber auch die Motivation Richard P. Feynmans, zu den höchsten Gipfeln der Wissenschaft vorzudringen, wird aus diesen Geschichten deutlich: unersättliche Neugier und geistige Unabhängigkeit. »Der Kernphysiker Hans Bethe beschrieb Dr. Feynman eins als ›Zauberer‹. Er hatte Recht. Es bedarf in gewissem Maß der Zauberei, um Wissenschaft so unterhaltsam, überzeugend und einfach zu machen, wie Feynman das getan hat.« Bill Gates in seinem Vorwort

One of the most famous science books of our time, the phenomenal national bestseller that "buzzes with energy, anecdote and life. It almost makes you want to become a physicist" (Science Digest). Richard P. Feynman, winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, thrived on outrageous adventures. In this lively work that “can shatter the stereotype of the stuffy scientist” (Detroit Free Press), Feynman recounts his experiences trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and cracking the uncrackable safes guarding the most deeply held nuclear secrets—and much more of an eyebrow-raising nature. In his stories, Feynman’s life shines through in all its eccentric glory—a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, and raging chutzpah. Included for this edition is a new introduction by Bill Gates.

The outrageous exploits of one of this century's greatest scientific minds and a legendary American original. In this phenomenal national bestseller, the Nobel Prize­-winning physicist Richard P. Feynman recounts in his inimitable voice his adventures trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and Bohr and ideas on gambling with Nick the Greek, painting a naked female toreador, accompanying a ballet on his bongo drums and much else of an eyebrow-raising and hilarious nature. Amazon.com Review A series of anecdotes shouldn't by rights add up to an autobiography, but that's just one of the many pieces of received wisdom that Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman (1918-88) cheerfully ignores in his engagingly eccentric book, a bestseller ever since its initial publication in 1985. Fiercely independent (read the chapter entitled "Judging Books by Their Covers"), intolerant of stupidity even when it comes packaged as high intellectualism (check out "Is Electricity Fire?"), unafraid to offend (see "You Just Ask Them?"), Feynman informs by entertaining. It's possible to enjoy Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman simply as a bunch of hilarious yarns with the smart-alecky author as know-it-all hero. At some point, however, attentive readers realize that underneath all the merriment simmers a running commentary on what constitutes authentic knowledge: learning by understanding, not by rote; refusal to give up on seemingly insoluble problems; and total disrespect for fancy ideas that have no grounding in the real world. Feynman himself had all these qualities in spades, and they come through with vigor and verve in his no-bull prose. No wonder his students--and readers around the world--adored him. --Wendy Smith From Publishers Weekly History will remember Nobel Prize–winning physicist Feynman (1918–1988), for his work in quantum physics and his role in the investigation of the explosion of the Challenger space shuttle. Contemporary readers and listeners, however, will remember him best for his reputation as a free-thinking iconoclast whose personal adventures were hilarious, insightful and inspiring. Todd does a fabulous job of conveying Feynman's infectious enthusiasm and childlike sense of wonder with his energetic portrayal of the scientist. He's adept even in difficult sections, such as when Feynman "speaks Italian" and "Chinese"—inventing completely made-up but accurate sounding languages. Todd does a good job of portraying Feynman's inquisitive manner and conveys the book's message and attitude with aplomb. While he sounds nothing like the late physicist (Feynman— the subject of James Gleick's Genius—had a thick Long Island accent and sounded more like a cross between Yogi Bear and The Honeymooners' Ed Norton), Todd's clean, polite voice is a revelation.

The New York Times best-selling sequel to "Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman!" 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 Feynman’s last literary legacy, prepared with his friend and fellow drummer, Ralph Leighton. Among its many tales—some funny, others intensely moving—we meet Feynman’s first wife, Arlene, who taught him of love’s 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 narrative of the investigation of the space shuttle Challenger’s explosion in 1986, and we relive the moment when Feynman revealed the disaster’s cause by an elegant experiment: dropping a ring of rubber into a glass of cold water and pulling it out, misshapen.

Rychard Feynman no es sólo uno de los físicos teóricos más destacados del mundo sino también una personalidad insólita y genial. En su biografía y en su obra se dan cita la curiosidad irrefrenable, el escepticismo empedernido, el sentido del humor, el gusto por la travesura, la más vasta cultura y el más penetrante ingenio. Feynman recuerda sus primeros experimentos y trabajos de niño, su incursión en la hipnosis, sus estudios en Princeton y el MIT, su fascinación por abrir cajas fuertes y los bares de topless, así como otros temas mucho más serios, como su participación en el Proyecto Manhattan desde el Laboratorio Nacional Los Álamos y la muerte de su primera esposa, Arline Greenbaum. ¿ESTA USTED DE BROMA, SR. FEYNMAN? recoge en forma casi inmodificada las conversaciones mantenidas a lo largo de una serie de años entre el Premio Nobel de Física y Ralph Leighton, quien se encargó de grabarlas y transcribirlas.

Der seltsamste Mensch

Das verborgene Leben des Quantengenies Paul Dirac

Der seltsamste Mensch ist der mit dem Costa-Buchpreis ausgezeichnete Bericht über Paul Dirac, den berühmten Physiker, der manchmal als der englische Einstein bezeichnet wird. Er war einer der führenden Pioniere der großen Revolution in der Wissenschaft des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts: der Quantenmechanik. Und er war 1933 der jüngste Theoretiker, der den Nobelpreis für Physik erhalten hatte. Dirac war seltsam wortkarg, nahm alles wörtlich und seine gehemmte Art zu kommunizieren und seine mangelnde Empathiefähigkeit wurden legendär. Während seiner erfolgreichsten Schaffensperiode bestanden seine Postkarten ins Elternhaus nur aus Berichten über das Wetter. Auf der Basis zuvor nicht entdeckter Unterlagen aus dem Familienarchiv verbindet Graham Farmelo eine kenntnisreiche Schilderung der wissenschaftlichen Leistungen mit einem einfühlsamen Portrait des Individuums Paul Dirac. Er zeigt einen Menschen, der trotz extremer sozialer Gehemmtheit fähig ist zur Liebe und zu treuer Freundschaft. Der seltsamste Mensch ist eine außerordentliche menschlich berührende Story ebenso wie ein fesselnder Bericht über eine der aufregendsten Zeiten der Wissenschaftsgeschichte.

Kann man sich leidenschaftlich für Politik, Fußball oder Rhythm n’ Blues interessieren und trotzdem ein kreativer Wissenschaftler sein? Der australische Nobelpreisträger Peter Doherty vermittelt in diesem unterhaltsamen und anregenden Erfahrungsbericht Einblicke aus erster Hand in die Welt der Forschung und der Forschenden. Mit Beispielen aus seiner eigenen Karriere – von den wenig verheißungsvollen Anfängen in den Vororten Brisbanes bis zu der bahnbrechenden Entdeckung zur Funktionsweise des menschlichen Immunsystems – stellt Doherty anschaulich dar, wie das Leben eines Wissenschaftlers aussieht. Er beschreibt, wie Forschungsprojekte ausgewählt werden, wie Wissenschaft finanziert und organisiert wird, welche wichtigen Probleme man mit ihr zu lösen hofft und welche Belohnungen wie auch Fallstricke eine wissenschaftliche Karriere bereithält. Doherty verrät seinen Lesern außerdem, was ihn persönlich umtreibt – etwa seine Überzeugung, dass die Aufgabe der Wissenschaft darin bestehen sollte, die Welt lebenswerter zu machen. Und er versucht Antworten auf einige große Fragen unserer Zeit zu geben. Sind Nobelpreisträger ganz besondere Menschen – oder haben sie einfach nur Glück gehabt? Ist genmanipuliertes Getreide wirklich gefährlich? Warum kommen Wissenschaftler und fundamentalistische Christen nicht miteinander aus?
