The Meaning of it All product reviews

What is science? Does it have an intrinsic value? Can the scientist believe in God? What is the value of doubt?

At the peak of his career, maverick genius Richard Feynman gave three public lectures addressing the questions that most inspired and troubled him.

Provocative and hugely entertaining, they are brought together in this volume.

OK, here's another one for The Educated Carbon-Based Lifeform. This is NOT for Johnny Q Public book.

Having a deep interest in 'the real nature of the universe' and any topics linked to it, I found this book fascinating reading. I only wish that I had been able to sit in the crowds that heard these first-hand, since reading a speech is never the same as hearing it, with all of the interaction from the audience, body language of the speaker, etc.

A bit different from another of Feynman's collected works, The Pleasure of Finding Things Out, this book is exactly what it claims to be, three of his more illuminative speeches in written form, wrapped in a pretty(ish) cover. And if that's what you want, then this is it in aces.

Overall, yup... but only if a perky little mixture of hard science and philosophy engages your interest. :)

Product image for Getting Away With Murder: The Jennifer Beard InquiryNineteen sixty-nine: the year Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, the Beatles sang 'Let It Be' and the period known affectionately as the 'swinging sixties' expired. It was also the year English hitch-hiker, Jennifer Beard, was murdered as she travelled a remote road near Haast Pass.

Armstrong, The Beatles and the sixties are famously remembered. But Jennifer Beard's killer is largely forgotten. He was never arrested, never charged, ... more...
