Not read "Surely you are joking Mr Feynman" ? Perhaps the geniuses best work. One of my fav read for sure.

Hey are you a TFN participant?

@YJ: I've read "Surely u'r joking...". His technical books for the layman kinda stuff are also super cool.

And yes, I'm a TFN participant. U too?

Just finished reading Adigas "White Tiger", and thought it was excellent. Simply written but so full of meaning.

Curious about your thoughts on it.

Good luck at TFN!

@BK: I haven't read it yet. Its a little behind in my to-read list. Now that u've recommended it, it'll probably be the one i'll read after my current one(Star Trek: Probe) :)

And thanks for the wishes for TFN
