A Search for Beauty in Physics and in LifeBook - 2003
For some, it was that special connection with a grandparent or a football coach, a boss, or a cleric. For Leonard Mlodinow, as a young physicist struggling to find his place in the world, the relationship that would most profoundly influence his life was with his mentor, the NobelPrize-winning physicist Richard Feynman. Drawing on transcripts from his many meetings with Feynman during their time together at Cal Tech, Mlodinow shares Feynman's provocative answers to such questions as 'What is the nature of creativity?' and 'How does a scientist think?' At once a moving portrait of a friendship and an affecting account of Feynman's final, creative years, FEYNMAN'SRAINBOW celebrates the inspiring legacy of one of the greatest thinkers of our time.
