Surely you’re Joking Mr. Feynman is a great book about a very smart guy who had some very interesting adventures. A couple of quotes I enjoyed.

In seeming contrast to, The Wisdom of Crowds, ” And that would be very “accurate” because you averaged so many people. But it’s no way to find anything out; when you have a very wide range of people who contribute without looking carefully at it, you don’t improve your knowledge of the situation by averaging. ” Copied text from here.

“Of course you only live one life and you make all your mistakes and learn what not to do and that’s the end of you.”
