I've never written a book review on my blog so far, somehow it has never occurred to me. But after reading the book that totally blew me away, I so wanted to share about it to a larger audience and hence I'm writing this piece. 'SURELY YOU'RE JOKING, MR. FEYNMAN!'' ~ Adventures of a Curious Character is an autobiography written by Nobel Prize winning theoretical physicist Richard P. Feynman coauthered by Ralph Leighton, his drumming friend.
