Read the books that impacted their career

Surely, you're joking, Mr. Feynman!

One of the books I have read a few times! Between his pages I learned about the power of curiosity, in experimenting and being in awe with the world around me. It allowed me to be excited about the science and the art in design, leading me to find the profession I am in today!
