Read full description of the books:
The Meaning of it All is based on lectures given by Richard Feynman to lay audiences at the University of Washington, Seattle, over three nights in April 1963, on science and its relationship to social problems and religion. (All of Feynman's published books are similarly based on recordings of lectures or conversations.) It pains me to say anything negative about a book by Feynman but this is one that probably should never have been published, except as part of a "Complete Works" set. This is partly due to a lack of editorial cleanup, and partly because Feynman appears to have been in rare bad form for these talks. (Of course, this is only bad form by Feynman's standards; if this were the only book of Feynman's philosophy in the world then it would be a flawed masterpiece.)
There's little material, if any, in this work that Feynman hasn't expressed elsewhere with far greater eloquence. In these lectures he makes a number of false starts and abrupt stops, and some minor errors most of which could easily have been corrected by an editor. At one point for instance, he uses "infinitesimal" when he obviously means to say "infinite." The only reason for leaving such mistakes intact is, I think, that the book was published posthumously and the publishers were afraid to touch Feynman's words without his approval. I'm sure that Feynman would have found that elevation of reverence over substance to be absurd. There's only one clear instance in the book in which an editor has touched the material; a parenthetical notation that Feynman had completed a sentence with a hand gesture instead of words.
At another point, Feynman apologizes for his limited knowledge of world religions and expresses the hope that "Hindus and Arabs" wouldn't feel excluded by his references to the religion with which he was most familiar, Christianity (Feynman had been born to a Jewish family but was an atheist). It's very likely that he was either winking at the audience when he said that, laughing at his own provincialism, or that he simply misspoke. In either case, although this error is trivial and irrelevant to his arguments, its unnecessary inclusion will, I suspect, give some overly sensitive readers an excuse to dismiss his arguments as the product of ignorance.
My recommendation to all but the most die-hard Feynman completists is to skip The Meaning of it all and instead pick up Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman, QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter and The Character of Physical Law. Surely You're Joking... is a collection of anecdotes reflecting Feynman's eclectic range of interests (nude portraiture, safecracking, bongo playing, hieroglyphic translating etc) and his singular outlook on life. QED and The Character of Physical Law are by far the deepest and yet the most accessible math-free science books that I've ever come across.

Read information about the authorRichard Phillips Feynman was an American physicist known for the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as work in particle physics (he proposed the parton model). For his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics, Feynman was a joint recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965, together with Julian Schwinger and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga. Feynman developed a widely used pictorial representation scheme for the mathematical expressions governing the behavior of subatomic particles, which later became known as Feynman diagrams. During his lifetime and after his death, Feynman became one of the most publicly known scientists in the world.
He assisted in the development of the atomic bomb and was a member of the panel that investigated the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. In addition to his work in theoretical physics, Feynman has been credited with pioneering the field of quantum computing, and introducing the concept of nanotechnology (creation of devices at the molecular scale). He held the Richard Chace Tolman professorship in theoretical physics at Caltech.
