Charles Charles said: "Highly original: It is narrated by a dog who is Jack the Ripper's familiar, and Jack is one of the good guys. Get the picture? No?...then read it! "

Very interesting, and seemingly a well balanced account of Feynman's life as well as bits of the lives of the other main figures in physics with whom he was associated. The only thing keeping me from giving this 5 stars was the somewhat chaotic flow...more

It doesn't matter what you read. What matters is you read. Whether it’s Tolstoy or Twilight, Kierkegaard or Betty and Veronica, keep reading, and don’t ever let somebody else—anybody—have a say about, or try to control, what you choose to learn from and/or escape into.Trent Zelazny

What If? by Randall Munroe

A rare combination of fun (sometimes even laugh-out-loud stuff) and education. Definitely worth a look if you're a xkcd.com fan, though it seemed to be a bit short for the price being charged for the e-book.

Roger Zelazny
“It was my turn to be silent while a small family of moments crossed my path, single file, from the left, sticking their tongues out at me.”
Roger Zelazny, The Hand of Oberon

Terry Pratchett
“This was not the time to say “I don’t know.” The brothers had begging, hungry looks, like dogs waiting to be fed. They wanted an answer. It would be nice if it was the right answer, but if it couldn’t be, then any answer would do, because then we would stop being worried...and then his mind caught alight.

That’s what the gods are! An answer that will do! Because there’s food to be caught and babies to be born and life to be lived and so there is no time for big, complicated, and worrying answers! Please give us a simple answer, so that we don’t have to think, because if we think, we might find answers that don’t fit the way we want the world to be.”
Terry Pratchett, Nation
