I'm sure somebody out there agrees with me. Feynman should be required reading for everyone.Yes, he should. I know I'm reviving an old thread here, but Feynman is essential reading not only because of his clarity and brilliance, but also because of his honesty.He's the only author that comes to mind to readily admit when he doesn't understand something. When speaking of quantum mechanics, he realizes that it is a wacky theory and offers no apologies or explanations. He simply admits that he doesn't know why it works, and that is a virtue that is absent in academia (and everywhere else for that matter).I'm currently reading "Lectures on Computation" and am amazed that I've finally found someone who can explain the Turing Machine!Feynman believed, as I do, that if a theory is unexplainable, then it is worthless.
