We either had the book as well, lbro, if not, I was picking my husband’s brain on the story’s mathematical aspects.

I don’t, however, only want to read about people I’d like to have a drink with and, despite the rather unsavoury aspects of Nash’s character, this is undeniably a fascinating book and I’m very glad I read it.

Make no mistake, John Nash not a lovable person.

He met horrible treatment days at hospitals to cope with his delusions. It is a story about the mystery of the human mind.

This leads to the conclusion that Nash is one of the lucky few who experience a near-complete remission after years of illness. So you know, in the end ,it was a somehow happy medium.

It is the people who study logic that are not so sane.

Though I usually like Blackstone Audio’s production of books, the narration of this one by Anna Fields, was below their standards. He is killed in a car accident along with his wife.
