I thoroughly enjoyed reading Jeremy Bernstein's article in AJP this month. The article discusses Dirac's life and is motivated by the recent biography of Dirac by Graham Farmelo, which I've mentioned on here.
As with many prominent figures in physics, Dirac had his own eccentricities, many of which are listed in this article. For those who have not read Farmelo's biography, this is the next best "Cliff Notes" version.
I see a movie being made of the book, probably directed by the Cohen brothers! :)
