About the book:

The New York Times best-selling sequel to "Surely Youre Joking, Mr. Feynman!"

One of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century, Richard Feynman possessed an unquenchable thirst for adventure and an unparalleled ability to tell the stories of his life. "What Do You Care What Other People Think?" is Feynmans last literary legacy, prepared with his friend and fellow drummer, Ralph Leighton. Among its many talessome funny, others intensely movingwe meet Feynmans first wife, Arlene, who taught him of loves irreducible mystery as she lay dying in a hospital bed while he worked nearby on the atomic bomb at Los Alamos. We are also given a fascinating narrative of the investigation of the space shuttle  Challengers explosion in 1986, and we relive the moment when Feynman revealed the disasters cause by an elegant experiment: dropping a ring of rubber into a glass of cold water and pulling it out, misshapen.
