The Pleasure of Finding Things Out: The Best Short Works of Richard P. Feynman

By Richard P. Feynman

Rating: 4 stars

This collection of writing and lectures by Richard Feynman really shows his delight in science as a means of understanding the world around us. Certain themes crop up again and again: knowledge for its own sake; his distaste of philosophy; the dangers of pseudoscience. His style is assured and draws you in. Well worth the read.

And it also taught me how to calculate square numbers around 50 in my head :-).
