Finalist, pulitzer prize in biography. Praise for A Beautiful Mind.

Nash had come straight there while Alicia and the baby went to Washington to stay with the Lardes. 1 He hung around Princeton. 1 He hung around Princeton Roanoke to visit Martha in the hospital. She remembered being frightened by his appearance and concealing from him her son’s due date, June 13. I was worried that he would put some meaning in it, she recalled in 1995. 2 Her recollection is that Nash stayed in Roanoke with Virginia for several weeks.

I purchased this book in order to learn about John Nash, Jr.'s life. Instead I found a book that rambled on about all sorts of others, but frequently it took pages and pages to get to John Nash, Jr.'s name or anything that related to him. Here's a quote that might give you the flavor of this book: "The Rockefellers made their millions in coal, oil, steel, railroads, and banking-in other words, from the great sweep of industrialization that transformed towns like Bluefield and Pittsburg in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. When the family and its representatives started to give away some of the money, they were animated by dissatisfaction with the state of higher education in America and a firm belief that "nations that do not cultivate the sciences cannot hold their own." Aware of the scientific revolution sweeping Europe, the Rockefeller Foundation and it's offshoot started by sending American graduate students, including Robert Oppenheimer, abroad." If you are expecting to see John Nash, Jr.'s name come up you won't until five pages later and in another Chapter. This type of rambling is found throughout the book and I found a frustration level rising in me that surpassed my desire to read very far into this book. If you are interested in learning about John Nash, Jr. read John Nash, Jr. The Life and Legacy of America's Most Influential Mathematician, a short, concise writing about him. It may give you the information you seek, but you will most likely not find it within the pages of this book.

In A Beautiful Mind, Sylvia Nassar tracks the life of the mathematical genius John Nash throughout his career and his struggles with schizophrenia. Mirroring the arc of Nash’s own life, Nassar splits the book into several parts: the first part covers Nash’s early life and mathematical blossoming; the second part elucidates his burgeoning relationships and the importance of connections to the outside world, as well as his growing star and significant mathematical contributions. The third section delves into some of the roots of his coming mental illness, both in terms of mathematical failures and turmoil within his personal life, as well as the first acute symptoms and subsequent hospitalization. The fourth part dives deeply into his downfall and plunge into mental illness, with the psychological reasoning and process behind it. Finally, the fifth portion explores Nash’s redemption and acceptance back into the mathematical and economics community, while also exploring his attempts to reconnect with his family members.

Nassar races through John’s early childhood, sprinkling in poignant anecdotes that foreshadow the sort of man he is to become. The story doesn’t begin in earnest until Nash discovers his passion for mathematics, after entering the Carnegie Institute of Technology. Nassar then takes us through his mathematical journey, from a talented but unproven graduate student at Princeton, to a young hot-shot paving his way at MIT while performing research for the government at the top-secret RAND Institute. In this journey the reader is immersed in a world of genius, larger than life personalities, and the world of the abstract; throughout, Nassar sprinkles laymen’s explanations of important theorems and proofs that lay the ground for Nash and then those he contributes to the mathematical canon. During this period, there is some foreshadowing of his future plunge into illness and his downfall from grace. Nassar continues to explore the complex web of politics, Nash’s relationships with women, as well as men, and the fascinating world of mathematics. Throughout the book Nassar explores the sometimes seemingly razor-thin line between genius and insanity, something that Nash himself acknowledges in that his wonderful mathematical ideas, as well as delusions, came to him in exactly the same manner.

Overall, Nassar paints a vivid, empathetic, and complex picture of schizophrenia through Nash and the devastation that it can wreak on a person’s life, if not properly treated. She flawlessly combines anecdotes, psychological theory and history of the treatment to give the reader an in-depth understanding of the disorder. She also speculates on how Nash came to, if not cure himself, then to become able to control the symptoms in a way to live a normal life and subsequently return to research and academia.

Well, it's the right book but the wrong cover. This printing has a cover shot of the actor who portrays Nash in the current hit movie. If you are a science and technology buff, you want the earlier printing of the paperback with the photo of the real Nash on the cover. (I have the wrong book and just ordered the right book from Amazon as well.)
If your academic life included time as a graduate student in math or the physical sciences, you will want this book. Sylvia Nasar, a journalism professor at Columbia, writes a sensitive chronology that lets this intriguing story of a Nobel-winning mathematician, whose genius wrestled with schizophrenia, come alive without the need for a motion picture. I guess I will do the movie too, but it could not possibly be better than the book.
A caution though. While there is no more mathematical jargon than absolutely necessary, this book is perhaps best for those whose academic backgrounds included at least a brief period in a graduate program for math or the physical sciences. The prides, ambitions, fears, and relationships in the world of Princeton, RAND, and MIT PhDs may be too unfamiliar or even boring to others. I guess, too, that the book is a fine study of the world of life on the edge of sanity; and those, unlike me, who are experienced in the fields of psychology may also find interesting content from their view.

I had watched the movie for the first time years back. I watched it recently, and upon impulse bough the book. I am glad I read the book. Usually, I used to think a movie can make you really feel because it's visual. This book changed that. "A Beautiful Mind" is a story of the tragedy that human life can become and like most things tragic, the silver lining usually exists.

It is also the story about how after all, no matter how brilliant and intellectually superior we are, we are after all human. We make mistakes, we are unsure of what we want, we are afraid of being a failure, we crave for recognition and we love winning. Life is hard and we have to accept it and face it.

Nasar does a good job of telling the story without bogging down in mathematical terms. I'm not a big math person so I appreciated this. Nasar does discus the math enough that it is clear what a huge genius Nash was. Before he became ill he was apparently more difficult to get along with than the movie of the same name shows.
