Chat with the author of
Feynman's Rainbow (2003)

Note: this chat has come and passed.  This page remains for historical purposes.

On Feynman's birthday, May 11 2003, from 9 to 10 PM EDT (US), chat with author, physicist, and friend of Feynman Leonard Mlodinow. Mlodinow's wonderful new book Feynman's Rainbow is due out in stores May 15. Here is a description of the book:

Einstein's Dreams meets Tuesdays with Morrie in Leonard Mlodinow's touching memoir about the guidance granted him by his mentor, the brilliant physicist Richard Feynman. For some, it was that special connection with a grandparent or a football coach, a boss, or a cleric. For Leonard Mlodinow, as a young physicist struggling to find his place in the world, the relationship that would most profoundly influence his life was with his mentor, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman. Drawing on transcripts from his many meetings with Feynman during their time together at CalTech, Mlodinow shares Feynman's provocative answers to such questions as "What is the nature of creativity?" and "How does a scientist think?" At once a moving portrait of a friendship and an affecting account of Feynman's final, creative years, FEYNMAN'S RAINBOW celebrates the inspiring legacy of one of the greatest thinkers of our time.
