Short Review

“A worthy addition to the Feynman shelf and a welcome follow-up to the standard-bearer, James Gleick’s Genius.” ―Kirkus Reviews

Richard Feynman, often regarded as one of the leading theoretical physicists of the 20th century, is also renowned as one the most charismatic educators of science. Quantum Man is a scientific biography offering a glimpse into a life at the forefront of physics of one of the brightest stars of science.

After the death of Richard Feynman plenty biographies have reached the book shelves. So how is this one different? The author, a renowned theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss, digs deep into the mind of Feynman, to find out exactly what made the quantum man tick. Krauss analyses both the biographical details and some original research papers to gain insight into Feynman’s scientific revolutions. The Quantum Man, is a detailed portrait of not only of the most fascinating personalities in the world of physics, but also one of the most dramatic eras in the history of science.
