SciFri Book Club - Richard Feynman

In case you missed it, Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman was the October book selection for NPR's Science Friday Book Club (not to mention it was the subject first ever book review posted on this site!)

You can listen to the discussion at the Science Friday Webpage.  The participants (led by Annette Heist) discuss Feynman's antics, his sexist attitude, and his brilliant mind among other things.  Lawrence Krauss, author of Quantum Man: Richard Feynman's Life in Science, also chimed into the discussion, adding further insight into Richard Feynman's life and the "great man behind the curious character".

Have you read this book?  Maybe you had a different take on it and disagree with the participants in the discussion.  Feel free to write your own review of this book for the blog or comment below to share your thoughts.
