“The first principle is that you must not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool.”
– Richard P. Feynman
This is my favorite documentary of one of my favorite people, Richard Feynman.
His lectures and books — such as Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman! (Adventures of a Curious Character) — have greatly inspired many of my best decisions in life. He also inspired me to teach.
I hope you enjoy the film as much as I did. Whether you like bongo drums, safe cracking, go-go dancers, or physics, there’s something for everyone.
Question of the day: If you had to pick your favorite documentary, which would it be and why? Let me know in the comments!
