The powerful, dramatic biography of math genius John Nash, who overcame serious mental illness and schizophrenia to win the 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.
