Perfectly reasonable deviations from the beaten track : selected letters of Richard P. Feynman by Richard P Feynman( file )
5 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 800 libraries worldwide
One of the towering figures of twentieth-century science, Richard Feynman possessed a curiosity that was the stuff of legend. Even before he won the Nobel Prize in 1965, his unorthodox and spellbinding lectures on physics secured his reputation amongst students and seekers around the world. It was his love for life, however, that earned him the status of an American cultural icon--here was an extraordinary intellect devoted to the proposition that the thrill of discovery was matched only by the joy of communicating it to others. In this career-spanning collection of letters, we are able to see this side of Feynman like never before. As edited and annotated by his daughter, Michelle, these letters not only allow us to better grasp the how and why of Feynman's enduring appeal, but also to see the virtues of an inquiring eye in spectacular fashion. The result is a wonderful de facto guide to life, an eloquent testimony to the human quest for knowledge at all levels

On time : from seasons to split seconds by Gloria Skurzynski( file )
3 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
Stars, sundials, hour glasses, wrist watches, pendulum clocks, atomic clocks- all of these have been used to keep time. Whether recording split seconds, seasons, years or centuries, human beings have always tried to find the best and most accurate way to chronicle the passing of time. In prehistoric times, early humans had only the signs of nature to keep track of when it was time to hunt, forage, or take shelter. Then came the rock formations at Stonehenge, the Roman sundials, and the Mayan astronomical calendars. Today, scientists have instruments than can precisely clock time down to the nanosecond. How timekeeping progressed from its first simple steps to its modern accuracy is an incredible story that will forever capture the imagination

This is the story of Brenda's journey from rags to riches to redemption. It's the story of the first unlikely year of her "Whole Way House" and of the extraordinary lives of the first seven women who came to call her "Miss Brenda."
