What Do You Care What Other People Think?: Further Adventures of a Curious Character

This book is the second of two books consisting of transcribed and edited oral reminiscences from American physicist Richard Feynman. It follows Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman!

The book presents his life as a series of humorous stories. Prepared

as he struggled with cancer, it was the last of Feynman’s

autobiographical works.

Nearly half of the book deals with his involvement on the Rogers Commission investigating the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster.

The book is much more loosely organized than the earlier Surely You’re Joking.

It contains short stories, letters and a few of the sketches that

Feynman drew in later life when he had learned to draw from an artist

friend, Jirayr Zorthian.

The stories are engaging, lively, and sometimes sad. Of note is the

story of his first wife, Arline, who died of tuberculosis while Feynman

worked on the atomic bomb.
