This book is a thorough biography of the life of Richard Feynman, Nobel Prize winning physicist and architect of quantum theories. The chapters are titled using the places Feynman lived throughout his life. Beginning with Feynman's childhood in Far Rockaway, N.J., the reader travels with him to college at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, graduate school at Princeton, work on the atomic bomb at Los Alamos, and additional work at Cornell and California Institute of Technology. A detailed account of Feynman’s life that often delves into his thoughts and feelings, the book is written much more like a novel than a biography. It is very readable with language suitable for nearly every age group.
