Praise for Loving Richard Feynman
Richard Feynman is one of my heroes. This book enthralled me with its blending of Feynman anecdotes with a moving and funny story of a high school student who is a ‘box of nerdish delight’.
Dr Karl Kruszelnicki
As a female physicist, I want to urge Physics teachers everywhere to read this book and then lend it to their English teacher colleagues.
Loving Richard Feynman is a delight to read; its ironic humour helps air the concerns and anxieties of the self-absorbed teen years.
What is interesting is the author’s introduction of an innate character that becomes intrinsically linked to the delivery of the novel’s overall well constructed premise.
Bookseller and Publisher
I read Loving Richard Feynman in one sitting (actually it was one lying, I was in bed) and by the end I was a very satisfied reader.

A 30ish guy managed to be kept up reading into the wee hours by a book written for teenaged girls. That’s just awesome.
An unusual story laced with humour, observation and no small insight.

A brilliant and quirky read.
