A Beautiful Mind - Sylvia Nasar

Faber & Faber, 1998, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps.

First in this edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Economist and journalist Sylvia Nasar has written a biography of Nash that looks at all sides of his life. She gives an intelligent, understandable exposition of his mathematical ideas and a picture of schizophrenia that is evocative but decidedly unromantic. Her story of the machinations behind Nash's Nobel is fascinating and one of very few such accounts available in print (the CIA could learn a thing or two from the Nobel committees). This highly recommended book is indeed a story about the mystery of the human mind, in three acts — genius, madness, reawakening.”
