9 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 983 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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

On the quest for wealth and prestige, ambitious young Andrew finds himself face-to-face with his own devil's bargain: forced to choose between soul and salary, true love and a strategic romance, Wouk's riotous, endearing hero learns a timeless lesson about the high cost of success in America's most extravagant metropolis
