book: The Pleasure of Finding Things Out

Full_image_5The Pleasure of Finding Things Out by Richard Feynman

This is a splendid audiobook. And while maybe not as compelling as Surely You are Joking Mr. Feynman! it was a wonderful book nevertheless filled with great anecdotes.

If you are an audible listener, this is a great audiobook read by a terrific actor. I’m so glad I was turned onto Feynman by friends like Christian Bailey this year.

    The best part of the book, I think, is how clearly Feynman defines science and what it means to be a scientist. I studied science for many years, but I’ve never seen a better discussion of science than Feynman’s.
    Specifically, I think everyone can benefit from understanding that science is not about lab coats, but about wanting to know why things happen, doubting received wisdom, and testing that wisdom and other theories in the real world.
