Secondhand paperback, 1989 Bantam edition. 195 pages (accounting for blank spaces) and 358605 characters total, with an average of 5.1 characters per word[1]. 186 'standard' pages.


Bought it from 'Bookshop' in Santa Cruz in July 2012 while visiting Mum's friend there. It was the third book I'd bought on that holiday, and I was already reading A Game of Thrones, so I stowed it away for future reading.

On the journey back on the 14th of July I finished A Game of Thrones, fetched this out of my bag, and shot through the first two thirds there on the plane, finishing it on the following weekend, on the way to York for a stag/hen do.

It was quite good, the second half, about the Challenger enquiry, was a bit drawn out but it's still interesting to read Feynman recounting the events.
