Review: Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman!

Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!
Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman! by Richard P. Feynman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

One of the most inspirational books I have read lately. Apart from being one hilarious ride with an adventurous theoretical physicist, this book also reminded me of somewhat forgotten ways of learning, thinking and experimenting in life and academics/career. Feynman comes across as an honest, courageous, fun-filled character who had certain child-like innocence and curiosity in his spirit. The writing will make you laugh, wonder and think. Feynman’s free-spirited nature, his attitude of questioning status-quo, his insatiable curiosity, his will to step out of his comfort zone and try new and often difficult things is inspiring, to the extent that one would want to break their present monotonous life and set out for their own adventure!
This book demands a permanent place in your library and re-reads.
