Feynman's Rainbow

This isn't a tutorial about physics; but Warner Books asked me to promote their new book Feynman's Rainbow. So that's what this is.
Richard Feynman is one of the most famous persons in physics; and his work has greatly contributed to modern physics.

Book description:

Drawing on extensive conversations the author had with Richard Feynman, this is the story of a young physicist trying to find his place in the world, and of the famous, old, and dying colleague whose wisdom helped him.
Between them, they shared talk, food, science, and laughter that led the younger man to a deeper understanding of both his own creative imagination and the nature of humanity itself.

Einstein's Dreams meets Tuesdays with Morrie in Leonard Mlodinow's touching memoir about the guidance granted him by his mentor, the brilliant physicist Richard Feynman.
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 Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman.
Drawing on transcripts from his many meetings with Feynman during their time together at CalTech, 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'S RAINBOW celebrates the inspiring legacy of one of the greatest thinkers of our time.
