Quantum Man: Richard Feynman’s Life in Science

by Lawrence Krauss

 

Krauss launched the Australian release of this book at Collector Books. Apart from being a brilliant physicist, Krauss has distinguished himself through numerous publications on science for the general public, his teaching at various academic postings around the world and also through his many public speaking activities - always notable for his combination of insight, humour and science.

 

Krauss shows how Feynman's discoveries revolutionised our understanding of the forces of nature and his major contributions as a teacher and public intellectual were no less outstanding. This book has been very favourably reviewed by leading publications including, The New York Times, the Guardian and the London Times.
