Don't forget that Feynman was also a drummer, an amazing story teller (very funny), and one of the finest humans ever to grace this planet. "Surely Your Joking Mr. Feynman" reads nothing like "A Brief History of Time" (which I've plowed through more than one...), and like Seinfeld, Surely You're Joking isn't really about anything!

Also by Feynman: "What Do You Care What Other People Think ?: Further Adventures of a Curious Character" is an equally excellent an entertaining read.
