Genius free pdf An illuminating portrayal of Richard Feynman a giant of twentieth century physics from his childhood tinkering with radios, to his vital work on the Manhattan Project and beyondRaised in Depression-era Rockaway Beach, physicist Richard Feynman was irreverent, eccentric, and childishly enthusiastic a new kind of scientist in a field that was in its infancy. His quick mastery of quantum mechanics earned him a place at Los Alamos working on the Manhattan Project under J. Robert Oppenheimer, where the giddy young man held his own among the nation s greatest minds. There, Feynman turned theory into practice, culminating in the Trinity test, on July 16, 1945, when the Atomic Age was born. He was only twenty-seven. And he was just getting started.In this sweeping biography, James Gleick captures the forceful personality of a great man, integrating Feynman s work and life in a way that is accessible to laymen and fascinating for the scientists who follow in his footsteps."
