A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar | Non-fiction | Biography | @simonandschusterin
Description: In this powerful and dramatic biography Sylvia Nasar vividly recreates the life of a mathematical genius whose career was cut short by schizophrenia and who, after three decades of devastating mental illness, miraculously recovered and was honored with a Nobel Prize. “How could you, a mathematician, believe that extraterrestrials were sending you messages?” the visitor from Harvard asked the West Virginian with the movie-star looks and Olympian manner. “Because the ideas I had about supernatural beings came to me the same way my mathematical ideas did,” came the answer. “So I took them seriously.” Thus begins the true story of John Nash, the mathematical genius who was a legend by age thirty when he slipped into madness, and who—thanks to the selflessness of a beautiful woman and the loyalty of the mathematics community—emerged after decades of ghostlike existence to win a Nobel Prize for triggering the game theory revolution. The inspiration for an Academy Award–winning movie, Sylvia Nasar’s now-classic biography is a drama about the mystery of the human mind, triumph over adversity, and the healing power of love.
My views: This book has a special place in my heart. It's something which have changed my life somehow. Life of John Nash from been a student in Princeton University to becoming a Nobel Laureate has inspired me a lot. Book is an amazing blend of action, drama and heartbreak. Title of the book perfectly fits for the Sir John Nash. Sylvia Nasar a really written a beautiful book on a beautiful mind.
