Description of A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar ePub
“A Beautiful Mind” is a fantastic book for anyone interested in the biographical details of an eminent man’s battle with mental illness. Sylvia Nasar is the author of this awesome book. Sylvia Nash chronicles the story of John Nash’s descent from fame as a mathematician working in some of the most prestigious universities in the United States to the bizarre world of the schizophrenic and then back out into becoming a Nobel Prize in Economics recipient. With painstaking precision and tons of footnotes, she began with Nash’s family history and proceeded through Nash’s life up to the present, never thinking twice about presenting any facts which may be disagreeable to some readers in an effort to present Nash’s life as clearly as possible. Her work is not only a credit to non-fiction writing but is also one step in the right direction to help the public see mental illness as something other than an affliction to be shunned. She shows that under the layers of a malfunctioning psyche, John Nash is a real human being.
Mirroring the arc of Nash’s own life, Nasar splits the book into several parts: the first part covers Nash’s early life and mathematical blossoming; the second part elucidates his burgeoning relationships and the importance of connections to the outside world, as well as his growing star and significant mathematical contributions. The third section delves into some of the roots of his coming mental illness, both in terms of mathematical failures and turmoil within his personal life, as well as the first acute symptoms and subsequent hospitalization. The fourth part dives deeply into his downfall and plunges into mental illness, with the psychological reasoning and process behind it. Finally, the fifth portion explores Nash’s redemption and acceptance back into the mathematical and economics community, while also exploring his attempts to reconnect with his family members. However, the book is well written, exciting, entertaining and thought-provoking.
