User Review  - Alan - Goodreads

Entertaining and thought-provoking! But awfully repetitive. Don't read it cover-to-cover, skim it for the sections that interest you. And don't make this book your first Feynman: read Surely You're Joking instead. Read full review

There are some really good pieces in it. However i found some of them a bit outdated, which is to be expected, but slightly diminished the reading pleasure for me. If you just read one Feynman books take Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! instead. Read full review
