    I was really disappointed by this graphic novel.
    The storytelling was weak, disjointed and confusing. I struggled to finish it and was bored most of the time while reading it.

    Maybe it was just me...

    I have been slow to discover the delights of Feynman, but I recognise a similar thinker, albeit a much, much brighter man. I love his famous BBC interview that was towards the end of his life and I did greatly enjoy his autobiographical sections in Six Easy Pieces.

  4. Tim Tim says:

    I really enjoyed this graphic biography. I found it much more engaging (perhaps because the subject was more engaging) than Logicomics, to which it will likely be compared. Unlike Na

    A comic-book biography of Nobel Prize winning theoretical physicist Richard Feynman?! It's an idea quirky enough to have pleased the man himself, I think. It's a great way of finding out about a great scientist without risk of ever getting bored and would make a fine first book

    A graphic novel about a famous Mathematician and Physicist. Wow! I loved this book. I have been wanting to read about Feynman and this was a great introduction to who this nobel prize winning physicist is. He was so different than you would think he is. It has little math or phy

    A graphic novel biography. There are a few of these floating around now, and I think it's a format that's best suited for scientists and artists. People whose lives will necessarily have graphic elements. Now, I knew very little about Feynman going into this book, and it would pr

    Too disjointed, showing bits and pieces of Feynman's life without much connecting it all together. The art didn't grab me either.

    The book jacket claims Feynman was a lot of fun at parties, but that doesn't shine through much in the book itself. I didn't realize some o

    Great art. Seems to capture various dimensions of the guy very well, and even get at the ineffability of explaining certain of his physics discoveries, which he admitted he couldn't fully understand himself. I grew tired of him; the idea is that he is sort of Aspergerishly off-putt

  10. Dan Dan says:

    Anyone who knows anything about anything knows I'm a know-nothing when it comes to math and physics. This is probably the fault of the Arizona public school system. Despite this lack of knowledge I quite liked this graphic novel bio. With great illustrations and not too math heavy i
