When I first heard something about Richard Feynman I was told what a good teacher he was. The students loved him. Later I found out he was a legend. Still later I found out he had produced that "legend image" mostly all by himself. And then I bought this book and was sooooooooooo annoyed by the "legend-weaving" in it that I almost put it aside. Hundreds of pages of forewords, dedications, thanks, historic blabla about what a great man Feynman has been and so on.
But then I found the "lessons" themselves - you know, the few pages between the adulation hymns - and they were not too bad. Some helpful, some inspiring. This book without the nonsense stuff in front would be just great.
