One of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century, Richard Feynman possessed an unquenchable thirst for adventure and an unparalleled ability to tell the stories of his life. "What Do You Care What Other People Think?" is Feynman s last literary legacy, prepared with his friend and fellow drummer, Ralph Leighton. Among its many tales some funny, others intensely moving we meet Feynman s first wife, Arlene, who taught him of love s irreducible mystery as she lay dying in a hospital bed while he worked nearby on the atomic bomb at Los Alamos. We are also given a fascinating narrative of the investigation of the space shuttle Challenger s explosion in 1986, and we relive the moment when Feynman revealed the disaster s cause by an elegant experiment: dropping a ring of rubber into a glass of cold water and pulling it out, misshapen.


  • ファインマンさんの本はいろいろあるが、これが一番面白かった。特に何もなく言葉も通じない伊勢奥津に滞在した話と、チャレンジャー事故の調査の話は感動的ですらある。英語学習本としても超おすすめ。
