Book Review: The Meaning Of It All - Richard Feynman

https://dl.dropbox.com/s/w6ilwgd9niepm8c/meaning_of_it_all.png

This is a short non-technical book consisting of compiled speeches of Richard Feynman. It does not into physics, but covers a lot of topics like religion, politics, society, ethical questions in science, atom bombs and scientist motivations. Richard feynman has lot of context to explore all these areas. Plus, his communication style is very pleasant.

I usually avoid reading general books like this. But I happen to pick this up, and on a day, when I was about to give some leeway into an astrology (it's not a science) shared by my close ones, having just reading a topic in this book gave me excellent points to bring my thinking back into track. Contrary to my assumption when starting to read this book, I found it extremely useful!
