I'm guessing you finally got around to reading "Surely You're Joking". What did you think?

Yea, it took me awhile to read & finish the book... I remember you (Chris) said that as a result of reading it, you became interested in science.... I'm surprised to never have known or heard about him before... and still I don't know much about his work.

The best part i liked were his stories of becoming an 'artist' and how surprised he was when people started appreciating his art.. Also the stories about meeting 'famous' peers: Einstein... Bohr... Fermi... and later, Werner Erhard, John Lilly...
