"More years ago than I care to reckon up, I met Richard Feynman." So begins American master Herman Wouk's gem on navigating the divide between science and religion. Told by Feynman that he must first learn "the language God talks"-- calculus-- Wouk set in motion a lifelong inquiry. Here, in one compact volume, he draws on stories from his life as well as on key events from the 20th century to address the eternal questions of why we are here, what purpose faith serves, and how scientific fact fits into the picture. He relates wonderful conversations he's had with scientists such as Feynman, Murray Gell-Mann, Freeman Dyson, and Steven Weinberg, and brings to life such pivotal moments as the 1969 moon landing and the Challenger disaster. Brilliantly written, this is a scintillating and lively investigation.--From publisher description.

I wasn't familiar with Wouk's work (Winds of War, War & Remembrance), but I was sold on the title and the notes on the back of the CD, it sounded so good. But, I am not sure what this book is about, certainly not what you'd think from the title. It is collection of snippets of conversations with Nobel Prize winners, musings on what it means to be a Jew, and background about - as well as whole passages from - Winds of War and War & Remembrance.
If you are a Wouk fan, you might find this interesting, but for me it was like listening to a senile grandpa (he was 95 when this was published). Far too rambling and incoherent for my liking.
