    My late mother was a scientist. She turned me on to Feynman's books. GREAT reading about his life and experiences.

    I was very moved to read his description of going rogue during the Challenger investigation and hanging out in the employee cafeteria, away from the big wigs......That's where he interacted with the engineers who walked him through the process of measuring temperatures....and explained their notebooks. . . which is how he figured out that there was a calibration error which led to the catastrophe.

    I loved the stories of his first wife, too.
