The letters in this book show the nature of Feynman with all his brilliance and character traits. He is one of the very few Nobels who put it out there for everyone to see. Even if you are not a scientist, getting insight into his perspectives may provide some things you can use in your own life. This compilation of letters of the Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman was compiled by his daughter. It gives some unique insight into the thoughts and opinions of a great mind. In some cases Feynman displays compassion for common people, but in others, he displays an arrogance that can be unsettling.

Richard Phillips Feynman (May 11, 1918 – February 15, 1988) was an American physicist

Richard Phillips Feynman (May 11, 1918 – February 15, 1988) was an American physicist. In the International Phonetic Alphabet his surname is rendered, the first syllable sounding like "fine". Many of the quotes here were delivered by Feynman orally in lectures or interviews. Do not read so much, look about you and think of what you see there.

The Letters of Richard P. Over and over again, Feynman reveals an integrity that led him to refuse any honorary degree, decline invitations to Russia as long as restrictions were imposed, decline signing petitions in the absence of what he saw was necessary evidence.

Great casual reading. I graduated from Cal Tech and even had Feynman as an occasional guest lecturer in my Physics 129 course. The letters in this book show the nature of Feynman with all his brilliance and character traits. He is one of the very few Nobels who put it out there for everyone to see. Even if you are not a scientist, getting insight into his perspectives may provide some things you can use in your own life.

I won't repeat the many good points other reviewers have made. This book is truly a gem. One more cool thing I noticed is that Feynman's letters provide a wonderful glimpse into how he kept others from wasting his valuable time. Turns out Feynman was a master of "begging off" when he didn't see value in doing things -- a key skill for a Nobel Prize winner who got far more requests than he could ever take up! And, not surprisingly, he did this with candor, brevity and often with humor. Though his beg-off letters aren't grouped together, the many examples in this volume could round out a Feynman "how to" guide for declining unwanted offers.

Here are just a few samples of Feynman's prose when saying NO:

...in response to an inquiry about returning to Los Alamos as a summertime consultant, he writes: "My plans for the summer are not definite. I expect to loaf around a great deal...I would just as soon not bother about filling out all the blanks for the contract until there is some definite reason for it."

...declining a request to contribute to a book about Hans Bethe, he offers: "I like Hans so very much that I feel I 'ought' to do what you want--but who invented this infernal idea of writing an article for a guy when he gets to be 60? Isn't there an easier way to show friendship and regard? I feel like I feel on Mothers Day."

...and declining a request to visit a colleague and well-wisher shortly after receiving the Nobel prize, he says: "I am sorry I shall not be able to stop in New York, either coming or going as I have a letter from a professor [the person requesting the visit] suggesting that I take very good care of my time."

There are a number of other examples, but you get the idea. It's just one more way to enjoy this great collection!

This compilation of letters of the Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman was compiled by his daughter. It gives some unique insight into the thoughts and opinions of a great mind. In some cases Feynman displays compassion for common people, but in others, he displays an arrogance that can be unsettling. Nonetheless, these letters make Feynman to be a more real person than his legendary persona. His daughter has done a service for the history of science. Reminds me of those letters between Galileo and his daughter, that were so revealing when they were first published.

For fans of Feynman this will be a rewarding read; the human side of a unique genius. The book is a compilation of the many letters between Feynman and not only his peers but letters he got from young people in high school and others from the general public. It begins with his early marriage to his first wife that died from TB while he was working at Los Alamos on the first Atomic Bomb, a very sad and very human story we can all relate to. So from the early 1940's up through his illness and death in 1988 we get a marvelous story of a very decent man who had a serious love for life and humanity.

This is a book I will read again. We lost a very unique mind and soul in 1988, way too early, in my opinion.

No author ever wrote books about the deeper aspects of physics, which could be easily understood by any high
school graduate, before Feynman or after Feynman. He was the master "story teller" and "guru" of physics during
his lifetime. Many short subjects are covered in this excellent publication, including most of his best magazine
articles and lectures. His review of math text books, near the end, could stand up even today, since most current
math textbooks used in schools nationwide have the same problems he detailed in his great critique. Once you
start reading this tome, it is difficult to put it down, even when you need to get some sleep. It is that good.

This was a book that I bought off here and as soon as I received it I diligently read it over the course of a few days. It was interesting to see how he responded to people personally because I have only read the stories he had to tell from his books. I would recommend this book to anyone seeking more information about the personal life of Richard Feynman and will note that it is a very worthwhile read if you're interested in his life. It takes his life from 21 years old up (it was weird reading it because I am 21 now) to a year before his death, I think. Life goes by so fast and he made the most of it as you will see from reading his letters.

This book offers an incredible insight to Feynman’s incredible mind. I felt it offered a wonderful understanding to his thinking and general attitude to people. I loved it!
Starting the book I was fascinated by the stories the letters tell of a most extraordinary man. I continued to read with enthusiasm, but after a while the letters seemed to repeat quite a bit, especially in the responses to congratulatory letters. A fantastic man, a too-long collection.
