Summary:

John Forbes Nash, Jr., a prodigy and legend by the age of thirty, dazzled the mathematical world by solving a series of deep problems deemed 'impossible' by other mathematicians. But at the height of his fame, Nash suffered a catastrophic mental breakdown and began a harrowing descent into insanity, resigning his post at MIT, slipping into a series of bizarre delusions, and eventually becoming a dreamy, ghostlike figure at Princeton, scrawling numerological messages on blackboards. He was all but forgotten by the outside world'until, remarkably, he emerged from his madness to win the Nobel Prize.

A true drama, A Beautiful Mind is also a fascinating look at the extraordinary and fragile nature of genius.

    I was really looking forward to this audio book, but I found it unbearably boring, and a dull read. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

    I had not seen the movie so I did not really have any idea of what to expect. Although the mathematical renderings were well above my level, this book was well-written and exceedingly detailed. Nash's illness and recovery were as amazing as were his contributions to the world of math, science and economy. I felt at some points though, the author became a bit repetitive and redundant, going over the same points and facts numerous times, which is the only reason I did not give this book 5 stars. A great read even with the repetition.
