If yes, how much common?

You only think you know, as a matter of fact. Felt a slight sting at an apparent attempt to simply bind together yet-unpublished-in-book-form texts, whereever they may be found and sell it with a “by Richard Feynman” tag. But there is no certainty.

You can imagine my surp Whatever your opinion of Feynman, you need to reconcile the fact that he’s got unbearably retrograde opinions: And a question requires doubt.


He was a bona fide genius, not just in Physics, but also in life. He also speaks quite candidly and openly of his feynmqn on the Manhattan Project.

Why have they used “girls” as calculators just to do simple repe I’d have given it a 5 star if there were not so many backward opinions about women in it.

In fact, the book bills itself as the best of his shorter works but some of the pieces were transcripts of interviews so they really weren’t his works at all. And most of your actions are based on incomplete knowledge and you really don’t know what it is all about, or what the purpose of the world is, or know a great plaacer of other things.

Feynman shines when he talks about physics, his Lectures books are impressive, masterful, but there’s is very little of that in this book.

She figured out where the intersection was!
