A Beautiful Mind

$690.00 $490.00

n 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.

 

Oliver Sacks Deeply interesting and extraordinarily moving.

«The New York Times» Reads like a fine novel.

«The Boston Globe» Superbly written and eminently fascinating.
