Richard Feynman: physicist . . . Nobel winner . . . bestselling author . . . safe-cracker. In this substantial graphic novel biography, First Second presents the larger-than-life exploits of Nobel-winning quantum physicist, adventurer, musician, world-class raconteur, and one of the greatest minds of the twentieth century: Richard Feynman. Written by nonfiction comics mainstay Jim Ottaviani and brilliantly illustrated by First Second author Leland Myrick, Feynman tells the story of the great man’s life from his childhood in Long Island to his work on the Manhattan Project and the Challenger disaster. Ottaviani tackles the bad with the good, leaving the reader delighted by Feynman’s exuberant life and staggered at the loss humanity suffered with his death. Anyone who ever wanted to know more about Richard P. Feynman, quantum electrodynamics, the fine art of the bongo drums, the outrageously obscure nation of Tuva, or the development and popularization of the field of physics in the United States need look no further than this rich and joyful work. One of School Library Journal’s Best Adult Books 4 Teens titles of 2011 One of Horn Book’s Best Nonfiction Books of 2011

3.0 Feynman
Huge Feynman fans like me won't find much new here- but there's so much worth revisiting that it's well worth picking up. I loved the stories, I loved the recreations, and I frankly loathed the illustrations. This loathing took away no little enjoyment for me, but since it's a book about RPF, well, ...

3.0 Feynman
An interesting portrait of a fascinating character. I enjoyed learning more about Richard Feynman - from his early life to his involvement in the Manhattan Project, Quantum Physics, and the Challenger investigation, and I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Feynman or physics.

4.0 Feynman
The authors don't hide that Feynman didn't suffer fools (or, basically, anyone) but even given the unsympathetic main character it was a fascinating book that sort of made me want to read more of Feynman's work and maybe more about him.
