Feynman - Jim Ottaviani, Leland Myrick

One of the greatest minds of the 20th century, Richard P. Feynman was also a colorful personality. In this graphic interpretation of the life of Feynman (First Second, $29.99), Jim Ottaviani and Leland Myrick distill physics, anecdotes, and much history into an easily digestible, thoroughly enjoyable book. Adopting the voice of Feynman himself—drawn from his work on the Manhattan Project and his famous lectures on physics—this book is an engaging ride, full of the humor its subject was famous for. And if that’s not enough, you’ll learn things!
