    Not like the movie.

    This book was a great disappointment. I was expecting a more detailed account of what the movie gave, but instead was treated to a historical essay on mathematical theory, Princeton University, the nobel prize, and schizophrenia. The only thing I learned about Nash was that he was an egotistical jerk. This book was a struggle through and through. If you are looking to be schooled on mathematical theory or any of the above mentioned subjects, this book is for you. If you are looking for an interesting story, just get the movie and skip the disappointment.

    Better than the movie!

    A believable and touching biography of human proportions yet with an insight into a special world of intellectual experience most of us will never achieve. The story of mental illness told in a very personal and specific way. It makes the reader more sympathetic about a little understood ailment that has catastrophic consequences in the patient and all who come in contact with him or her. The movie was great entertainment; the book is great biography.

    A Beautiful Mind is a stellar book. It provides a detailed look

    A Beautiful Mind is a stellar book. It provides a detailed look inside the mind of the mentally ill set against the backdrop of mathematics. It is a sad story. I found it very hard to put down. I found it even better than the movie, which I loved. John Nash’s ability to mind over matter his reality is inspirational. Five stars.
