May 14th (Mother’s Day) - Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman by Richard Feynman
Meeting at about 7:15 p.m. at Barbara's home,
History will remember Nobel Prize–winning physicist Feynman (1918–1988), for his work in quantum physics and his role in the investigation of the explosion of the Challenger space shuttle. Contemporary readers and listeners, however, will remember him best for his reputation as a free-thinking iconoclast whose personal adventures were hilarious, insightful and inspiring. A series of anecdotes shouldn't by rights add up to an autobiography, but that's just one of the many pieces of received wisdom that Feynman cheerfully ignores in his engagingly eccentric book, a bestseller ever since its initial publication in 1985.
