More reviews at The Story Within The Story At first glance, a biography of a mathematician would seem to make for a read dryer than the Sahara. However, John Nash is no ordinary mathematician and Sylvia Nasar is no ordinary biographer. In her capable hands, the life of John Nash comes to lifein all of its brilliant, dark, pessimistic, extraordinary, callous wonder. John Forbes Nash, Jr. In her capable hands, the life of John Nash comes to life…in all of its brilliant, dark, pessimistic, extraordinary, callous wonder.
The power of his theories culminated with him being awarded the Nobel Prize for Economics nearly fifty years after his groundbreaking work began.
But it came at a heavy price. By the age of thirty, Nash was suffering from his first bouts of paranoid schizophrenia, a disease he would suffer with for three decades.
He was institutionalized by his family on several occasions and left for dead by most of the mathematics community. He even begin to work on mathematics research again. It was a recovery that physiatrists thought was impossible. 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. Make no mistake, John Nash not a lovable person. His genius is both a gift and a curse.
And it is a society of the s and s with little understanding or tolerance for mental illness. It demonstrates hope. It demonstrates redemption. It is a story well worth your time.
