Don’t You Have Time to Think? by Richard P. Feynman
Finished reading on May 3rd, 2015
If you’ve ever thought what could a famous scientist possibly communicate about with other people, then this collection of Richard Feynman’s letters is a great one to read, as you can read his correspondence with other scientists, relatives and fans.
I quite liked it – you can see what Feynman’s attitudes were on different subjects, and I’d even say it’s inspirational .
I very much enjoyed the letters he wrote to students, who were asking for advice on what to study, and Feynman’s advice to always study what you’re interested in and do what you love, no matter where it might take you, but possibly still keeping your grades up 🙂
I was thinking of reading this and then continuing straight with Gleick’s “Genius”, but now I feel like I’ve gotten quite a good idea about his life and work, so I might not get to “Genius” quite as soon.
Now I want to read Feynman’s Lectures On Physics instead….
