QUANTUM MAN Richard Feynman’s Life in Science

by | Read by Lawrence M. Krauss

Biography & Memoir • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

The bulk of Krauss’s biography of the late Nobel laureate physicist focuses more on his theories, revelations, and scientific contributions than on his quirky personality. The work is at first engaging but becomes dry. The author’s narration does not hit the mark of a professional. His pace and tone are uniformly monotonous, and long sentences consistently trail off in volume. Quotes from Feynman’s lectures, writings, and personal life are included, but nothing in the audio performance differentiates these from the balance of the text. Still, Krauss addresses Feynman’s intense drive with great facility, and his respect and deference for Feynman are palpable. Ultimately, though, for those unfamiliar with quantum physics, this audiobook is a not an effective way to learn much about Feynman’s fascinating life and creative mind.
