He grew up as a child who lacked social skills which his parents feared the mostdays he locked himself up in dark room Update: The book is written fairly monotonously and is not that easy to read, though I did finish it nadar two sittings. Unfortunately, she was absent from school the days they taught about engaging your audience, limiting your topic, and just about every other skill related to literature.

It detailed some of the events in Sylvka life although seemingly at a distance, almost surgical, but the amount of the content the author had obtained made the movie somehow romanticize the man into a mythical math naxar and made his life a film noir.
Jan 31, Terran rated it really liked it. He apparently used to stand on the table in the middle of Princeton’s math department grad student meetings and put down a I read very few biographies, so I have trouble evaluating this within its field. He won the Nobel prize, but other than that John Nash was a complete failure as a human being.
I was surprised to find this one among them. 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. It makes me reflect on the structure of society in general, and academia specifically, and what we regard as sufficient excuse for bad behavior.
Make no mistake, John Nash not a lovable person. The movie contrives scenes for the sake of drama and totally glosses over critical aspects mrnte Nash’s life, such as his bisexuality, the ignoble way he treated his first family including an illegitmate son in Boston, or even that whole “math” thing he was so good at.

As a math geek, I wish there had been a bit more about his math itself. We either had the book as well, or, if not, I was picking my husband’s brain on the story’s mathematical aspects. However this is not entirely a matter of joy as if someone returned from physical disability to good physical health.
Also, Nash’s general “jerk-ishness” is really toned down in the movie, despite being on center stage in the book. For example, when he pushed his pregnant wife down the stairs. Even when he was sane, he was arrogant, self-absorbed, and sylvvia.
She graduated from Antioch Wylvia inand earned a masters’ degree in economics at New York University in I never thought I would be so interested in details about math theorems, math colleges, and history of math.
It is menfe math book. It seems to be a commonly held belief that genius often goes hand-in-hand with mental illness. Want to Read saving…. Books by Sylvia Nasar. It’s almost impossible to say how much of Nash’s how to put this?
