It is hard not to enjoy this author. Richard Feynman is an extremely curious character with a lot of time on his hands. He obviously loved to explore the science world as an art. He won the Nobel Prize in 1965 for physics and was one of the greatest physicists of all time. Within the few chapters and pages that I have read, Richard Feynman was definitely a man with a huge sense of adventure and a very high intelligence. In the first chapter that I read (Testing Bloodhounds), I thought that it was very interesting. I never knew that we, as humans, could smell and observe things just like dogs.
