Abstract:

One of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century, Richard Feynman possessed an unquenchable thirst for adventure and an unparalleled ability to tell the story of his life. What do you care what other people think? is Feynman's last literary legacy, which he prepared as he struggled with cancer. Among its many tales - some funny, others intensely moving - we meet Feynman's first wife, Arlene, who taught him of love's irreducible mystery as she lay dying in a hospital bed while he worked nearby on the atomic bomb at Los Alamos. We are also given a fascinating narrative of the investigation of the space shuttle Challenger's explosion in 1986. Not as humorous as his other memoirs but in many ways more profound.
