I've just read a series of Richard P.Feynman essays and indeed extremely amusing he touches on his subject ''Physics and even a dipstick like myself could understand his work.A literary raconteur of the first order
If you get the chance read his books ,the last book in the series was actually finished by a friend Richard Leighton shortly after Richards death from cancer in 1988
'Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rapidly promoted by mainstream media,
which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end.'
Feynman, along with Enrico Fermi, Carl Sagan, E.O.Wilson, are some of the scientists that I admire most. I particularly loved Feynman's Five Easy Pieces and Five Not So Easy Pieces, along with his more autobiographical stuff like Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman. Feynman's ability to distill esoteric and labyrinthine theories into jargon free text won me over. Check him out on youtube as well: YouTube - richard feynman
I really liked reading Feynman's books although the 5 not so easy pieces were not so easy for me. Along the same lines is a book called "Dancing with the Wu LI Masters". A really good book that puts physics in a light that is not so math oriented and makes it almost understandable.
Thanks for the youtube connection I never gave that outlet a thought.
