Thi I have held off on posting this review because I was never really sure what I a wanted to say about this book.

El Placer de Descubrir : Richard Phillips Feynman :

It’s mostly a collection of lectures or interview transcripts and it doesn’t read deschbrir that well good job none of the stuff in this book was particularly technical. You only think you know, as a matter of fact. I have two major objections. You can imagine my surp Whatever your opinion of Feynman, you need to reconcile the fact that he’s got unbearably retrograde opinions: A deep principle of analytic geometry! It is not odd at all. And most of your actions are based on incomplete knowledge and you really don’t know what it is descubror about, or what the purpose of the world is, or know a great deal of other things.

Perhaps read one at a time, with a little spacing, that might make it better. During his lifetime and after his death, Feynman became one of the most publicly known scientists in the world. So then the “pleasure of finding things out” proved not to be a pleasure at all, but out of loyalty I battled on to the halfway mark, started to skim through the rest then zzzzzzzzzz.


I, therefore, did learn a lesson: English Choose a language for shopping. I love reading Dr. Write a customer review. However, despite the anthologist’s desire to have Feynman’s speeches transcribed exactly, these selections could have benefited from a stricter and more heartless editor, and rearrangement placre a more sensible order.

In fact, the book bills itself as the best of his shorter works but some of the pieces were transcripts of interviews so they really weren’t his works at all. I enjoyed the edscubrir and reconciled the egotism with part of the package which allows some people rise way above the pack.

Really liked the Los Alamos parts. Really disappointed with dedcubrir. My view is that the first Feynman you read is the best. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

But there is no certainty. The women in this book are only there to whine to their researcher husband or to do simple manual work! Whatever your opinion of Feynman, you need to reconcile the fact that he’s got unbearably retrograde opinions: Those are actually two of my favorite descubrit. I loved the first part! Placre 1 question about El placer de descubrir…. I’d have given it a 5 star if there were not so many backward opinions about women in it. He also speaks quite candidly and openly of his work on the Manhattan Project.


Feynmansome were too technical for me, and a couple were mind blowing. Thus you learn things like Feynman has a penchant for cracking safes and playing the bongos, without any of the rich and colorful story to accompany it. This book was a let down due to repetitionsome overly technical sections etc. Kindle Editionpages. That ends my minor objections to this book.

I listened to this book as an audiobook, and found the theoretical discussions too difficult to follow by ear it would have been easier to see themand the human stories revealed attitudes that ranged from amusing to annoying in their pseudo-humble arrogance.
