    The book is about the life story of John Forbes Nash a mathematical genius and inventor of a theory of rational behaviour for which he was awarded a Nobel Prize in 1994 Presenting a characterization of schyzophrenia, the author helps in informing the reader about the circumstances under which a spontaneous recovery from his dementing and degenerative disease believed to be so rare, b

    A Beautiful Mind is one of those books that I loved so much, and learned so much from reading that I ve yet to actually review it However, in light of the news that the man behind the eponymous mind, John Forbes Nash Jr., is no longer with us I thought I d at least take the time to recommend the book, if not to explain why.
