Most widely held works by Christopher Sykes
No ordinary genius : the illustrated Richard Feynman by Richard P Feynman( Book )
11 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in English and Chinese and held by 1,155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This intimate, moving, and funny book traces Feynman's remarkable adventures inside and outside science, in words and in more than one hundred photographs, many of them supplied by his family and close friends. The words are often his own and those of family, friends, and colleagues such as his sister, Joan Feynman; his children, Carl and Michelle; Freeman Dyson, Hans Bethe, Daniel Hillis, Marvin Minsky, and John Archibald Wheeler. It gives vivid insight into the mind of a great creative scientist at work and at play, and it challenges the popular myth of the scientist as a cold reductionist dedicated to stripping romance and mystery from the natural world. Feynman's enthusiasm is wonderfully infectious

The Day the guns fell silent ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"November 11, 1918, marked the official end of the Great War--and the start of a peace so flawed that it guaranteed a second war of devastating proportions. This outstanding program documents the events of the war's last day, through archival footage, contemporary records, and poignant personal narratives, and traces the war's profound social and political impact on Great Britain. These accounts of death and bitter survival underscore the Pyrrhic nature of 'the war to end all wars, ' which cast a shadow of disillusionment across Europe and the entire 20th century."--Container
