Surely You're Joking

Two of the most important influences on my style and biographical study are great books but not biographies:

Surely You Must Be Joking, Mr. Feynman by Richard Feynman (genius mathematician and physicist and humorist)

All To Human: A Political Education by George Stephanopoulos (journalist and former Clinton strategist)

I'm also getting inspiration from the new biography on Chris Farley, which cleverly pulls from countless testimonials from childhood friends. It's a slice of life.
