Told by Feynman that he must first learn "the language God talks"--calculus--Wouk set in motion a lifelong inquiry. Here, in one rich, 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.--From publisher description.

Forget the title. This is a book about Herman Wouk.
Mr. Wouk is very much self absorbed - but likeable, as he wanders all over the map in this book, always back to himself.
There are a lot of interesting, if disconnected stuff here, but does get tedious as you wonder where he is going and how all this relates to his book title. The title is much more interesting than the entire book. In the end you know exactly what Mr. Wouk is interested in - himself.
