Ultimately the book is worth reading simply because of its honesty. I’m not any sort of expert, but it’s just possible that paranoia builds up in a person who tries to build castles of sand on a sand bar.

Reading about Nash’s early life and the beginning of his career, I couldn’t help but notice that he was always rather This biography was the basis for the popular film “A Beautiful Mind” a few years prosigiosa.

His other works are so involved that I have trouble parsing the statement menre the theorems, let alone the proofs.

At the present time I seem to be thinking rationally again in the style that is characteristic of scientists. The sum of a man in: So even if you’ve seen the movie, I recommend the book; there’s lots more to learn. I never would have thought a book on a real life person to be more interesting than the fictitious movie the book had inspired.

A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar. Her story of the machinations behind Nash’s Nobel is fascinating and one of very sylvoa such accounts available in print the CIA could learn a thing or two from the Nobel committees.

And, most striking of all, he is a much nicer person after his harrowing experience with insanity than he was as an arrogant wunderkind.

Videos About This Book. Like all of us, he lived a complicated, difficult life. You can start with that one. We either had the book as well, or, if not, I was picking my husband’s brain on the story’s mathematical aspects. Nassr family immigrated to the United States inthen moved to Ankara, Turkey in This book was a lot like watching someone else’s home movies. He’s a total a-hole.

A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar

John Forbes Nash, Jr. And it is a society of the s and s with little understanding or tolerance for mental illness. Then again, have you ever noticed how many bank clerks, librarians, grammar school teachers, and accountants become paranoid, tinpot dictators somehow?

I loved the movie,I’ve seen.

He grew up as a child who lacked social skills which his parents feared the mostdays he locked himself up in dark room with books alone, has no close friends etc.

For me, that was the most interesting part of the book while the second act, where he became to regress in his personal life was the one that made his story epic and surreal. John Nash won his Nobel for economic models based on game theory.

She is no doubt a wonderful researcher, but includes details so small as to call into question her own sanity, let alone the sanity of her subject. It’s the fascinating story of an arrogant young mathematician who began his career with genius-level work in mathetmatics, succumbed to paranoid schizophrenia in his thirties, and ultimately experienced a remission in the late 80s and was awarded the Nobel Prize for his early work in game theory.

It is a math book. He even begin to work on mathematics research again. At this remove, I cannot mnte any details. Historical fiction about mathematics or mathematicians. Ultimately, Sylvia Nasar succeeds with A Beautiful Mind because she leaves out most of the heavy-handed mathematics and focuses on who John Nash is and what his life represents.


I hadn’t heard of Nash before and was hooked since. Now John is all alone and he has his madness in its peaks. Because I see several friends who libor it as “to-read” 3 years ago still have not read it, and they should! When it comes to geniuses, a few archetypes generally come to mind.

A Beautiful Mind is one of those books that I loved so much, and learned so much from reading that I’ve yet to actually review it.

It wasn’t always that the truth can be as more puzzling as the reality. The narrator, by the way, one Edward Hermann, was one of the best I’ve heard recently; an unremarkable voice in a way but a reading that was as smooth as silk with absolutely NO annoying mannerisms of speech. It makes me reflect on the structure of society in general, and academia specifically, and what we regard as sufficient excuse for bad behavior. One aspect of this is that rationality of thought imposes a limit on a person’s concept of his relation to the cosmos.

I was thinking of this book again because of the deaths of John and Alicia Nash. Alone, and for good reasons his most precious possession ,his mind, was turning against him.
