Feynman in
Oxford Book of Modern Science Writing

Richard Feynman and many other important 20th-century scientists are included in "The Oxford Book of Modern Science Writing," edited by Richard Dawkins.  Dawkins, who is very well-known for "The Selfish Gene" and "The God-Delusion," has selected each article as being monumental to 20th-century science. In addition to Richard Feynman, it includes articles and essays by Peter Atkins, Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, Stephen Jay Gould, Carl Sagan, Alan Turing, Ian Stewart, and many others of note.

"It is a volume intended to celebrate rather than analyze modern science writing, and it fulfills this aim well: it is a book from which the love of science and the love of language shine." -- Science Magazine

"If you could only ever read one science book, this should probably be it."--New Scientist
