Leonard Mlodinow "Feynman's Rainbow by Leonard Mlodinow"
Publisher: Books on Tape, Inc. | 2004 | 48 kbps/22 mhz MP3 mono | ISBN: 0736694048 | 97 Mb
Subject: Richard Feynman | science | physics | Reader: Michael Prichard | 7 mp3 files | RAR'd | 4 hrs. 39 min.

Feynman's Rainbow recounts the relationship between Feynman and Mlodinow, an intimidated young physicist who comes to Caltech during Feynman's last years and makes the elder man his mentor. The memoir gives readers an intimate look at Feynman's scientific imagination and his rivalry with fellow Nobel laureate Murray Gell-Mann.

The late Nobel laureate Richard Feynman has been virtually canonized as the People's Physicist -- an earthy, bongo-playing free spirit who delighted in puncturing the pomposity of the establishment. In this memoir, by ex-physicist and Star Trek writer Mlodinow [who was] a post-doctoral colleague of Feynman's at Caltech, the aging physicist still cracks wise, crashes parties, works on his physics at a strip joint and needles stuffed-shirt academics. Mlodinow was something of a Feynman-esque character himself -- he liked to smoke pot with the garbage man next door and was working on a screenplay
-- so he turned to the older scientist for life lessons. * * * Mlodinow's accessible style manages to convey Feynman's cantankerous appeal as well as some of the weirdness of theoretical physics without overtaxing lay readers, while his deft, funny, novelistic portraits of its practitioners, like the (as portrayed here) toweringly pretentious and touchingly human Nobelist Murray Gell-Mann, bring this seemingly gray sub-culture to vivid life.


From the audiobook jacket:

Nobel Prize-winner Richard Feynman was not only a great scientist and a great teacher, but also an idiosyncratic individual whose penetrating wit
illuminated the world for all who came in contact with him, either in person or in his books. FEYNMAN'S RAINBOW recounts the relationship between Feynman
and Mlodinow, an intimidated young physicist who comes to Caltech during Feynman's last years and makes the elder man his mentor. The memoir gives readers an intimate look at Feynman's scientific imagination and his rivalry with fellow Nobel laureate Murray Gell-Mann. Mlodinow shows how Feynman helped him to find and nourish his own creativity, and includes extensive transcripts of their conversations, which roam over physics, art, love, happiness, and God. FEYNMAN'S RAINBOW is a moving journey of the heart and mind.

"An accessible portrait of a brilliant man"

[Edit 12.24.08:]

Somewhere along the line these files got deleted off of the hoster. Coulda been my fault for all I know, in "cleaning up" my uploads. Anyway, I just noticed the deletions today, and have re-upped the sample and the audio-book -- with new links, as set forth above.

Share and enjoy.
