This work, drawn from several sources, including speeches, interviews, and articles, has a personal feel. And Sean Runnette delivers it in a personal, conversational way. He clearly captures the “gee-whiz” nature of a scientist who was forever curious. The pauses, changes in emotion, even the asides and digressions, sound perfectly natural. Perhaps the most illuminating and interesting part—for non-physicists, anyway—is the behind-the-scenes discussion of life at Los Alamos, New Mexico, during the WWII atomic bomb project. The account shows Feynman’s impish side and humanizes this episode in the history of the war. Some of the entries are highly technical, but Runnette carries them off without hesitating or stereotyping the speaker with a pedantic tone. R.C.G.
