"Feynman's Rainbow" by Leonard Mlodinow

Part biography (on both Feynman and Mlodinow) and part philosophical exploration, Mlodinow details his quest to find self-understanding in his physics related career endeavors.

Interesting tidbit: String theory, something that we are just starting to grapple with, was mocked and missed for years before finally getting the last formula it needed to make mathematical sense.
