Described by his peers as the "finest physicist of his generation," Richard Feynman defied scientist stereotypes. This brash New York-born American physicist startled the more conservative giants of European physics with his endless ability to improvise. Indeed, later in life, Feynman became an accomplished bongo player. Feynman's legacy to physics was his ability to simplify complex equations and clarify fundamental principles through the use of graphs. He developed the theory of quantum electrodynamics, which illustrates the behavior of electrically charged particles, such as electrons, and their interaction with electromagnetic radiation. From his calculations as part of the Manhattan Project team to his role investigating the Challenger space shuttle explosion, this clearly written title delves into the fascinating life and work of this influential scientist.
