Richard Feynman originated the idea of quantum computing, nanotechnology, as in molecular machines, in the early 1950s. One of the greatest physicists, teachers and renaissance men of the twentieth century. He was broadly celebrated in the science world by the time his popular best selling books were published until he came into the public awareness during the Congressional hearings when he was televised demonstrating one of the problems with the Space Shuttle Challenger causing the disaster by showing the temperature variable with the material used in the O-rings.
Quantum Mechanical View of Reality: Workshop at Esalen, 11/83
A very brief (90 minute audio) edit of the workshop is available in audio and the set of videos is presented with very little editing...both are a must for dedicated Feynman fans--8 hour video. If you must have audio its available, but the video is much better.
Bits and Pieces -- from Richard's Life and Times
See and hear the iconoclastic Nobel prize-winner playing congas and other rhythm instruments, dancing, conducting idiosyncratic workshops, participating in the Challenger hearings, explaining the "Feynman Diagrams" and much more. A lovely and memorable visit. TRT - 79min
Idiosyncratic Thinking Workshop
Two years of insight spoken during two five day workshops went into the making of the five-tape audio album. The video is an abbreviated highlights tape, stressing the visuals. Feynman fans are going to want both the audios and video of this series. Five 90 minute tapes.
Perfectly Reasonable Deviations From The Beaten Track:
The Letters Of Richard P. Feynman.
Michelle Feynman collects her famous father's letters to reveal a warm, honest man with high expectations for himself, his loved ones, and the human race. Long before Richard Feynman won the Nobel Prize, he was a smart, skinny graduate student at Princeton, writing letters to his mother and relating the mundane details of college life.
No Ordinary Genius: The Complete Illustrated Feynman
Any Feynman fan will have to have this book. The NOVA program, produced by Christopher Sykes of BBC, has been viewed all over the world. Gratefully, Sound Photosynthesis is fondly mentioned.
QED - The Strange Theory of Light and Matter
Physics Nobelist Feynman simply cannot help being original. In this quirky, fascinating book, he explains to laymen the quantum theory of light--a theory to which he made decisive contributions. -- The New Yorker
Richard Feynman . A Life in Science.
Six Easy Pieces
Designed for non-scientists, Six Easy Pieces is an unparalleled introduction to the world of physics by one of the greatest teachers of all time. If one book was all that could be passed on to the next generation of scientists it would undoubtedly have to be Six Easy Pieces. ---John Gribbin in New Scientist Available in limited number.

The Meaning of it All
In April 1963, Richard P. Feynman gave a series of remarkable lectures at the University of Washington in Seattle. These three consecutive talks were classic Feynman. Full of wit and wisdom but their subject matter was wholly unexpected: Feynman spoke not as a physicist but as a concerned fellow citizen, revealing his uncommon insights into the religious, political and social issues of the day.
Tuva or Bust!
It all began when Richard Feynman, Nobel Prize-winning physicist, jazz drummer, all-around character, and author of the bestselling Surely Youre Joking Mr. Feynman!, asked this question of his friend and collaborator Ralph Leighton over dinner one night. Whatever happened to Tannu Tuva? It took ten years to find the answer, as the two men followed a trail of dated travel journals and Soviet radio broadcasts to a remote region in central Asia--a place whose capital doesnt have a single legitimate vowel and whose natives practice a bizarre form of throat-singing. This exhilarating book also records Feynmans valiant ten-year struggle with cancer, his battle with NASA bureaucracy as he tried to unearth the truth about the Challenger disaster as a member of the Rogers Commission, and an extraordinary friendship between two zany strategists that ended only with Feynmans death. Tuva or Bust! is high adventure of the mind and spirit, overflowing with intellectual curiosity and a sense of the utter gravity of fun.
