Have no fear that the personal letters of a Nobel Prize-winning physicist might be too forbidding or difficult. Rather, the missives portray the professor's most personal thoughts and ideas, including love letters to his first wife, Arlene, and scholastic advice to children. Richard Poe reads the messages from Professor Feynman, and Johanna Parker reads those sent to him, as well as some narrative background to establish their context. The dual narrators make it easy to realize who is writing, since the correspondence switches frequently between to and from. Both narrators enunciate well and avoid haste; by minimizing their inflection, they encourage listeners to concentrate on the content.
