About A Genius of a Man...in Search of 'Something More'

This is a story of a genius of a man who is so caught up in world views and in search of 'something more' until he spirals into a "glut". I give this book a solid "A" (five stars). It was quite enlightening and opened my mind to new things. It's ultimately a learning experience. The book offers a person room for one's own intellectual vision. If you think you're a genius or 'want to be' more of a genius then you should definitely read this book for inspiration. It's a tribute to the importance of mathematicians. More than half of the book (Chapters 1-33) will focus on the genius of John Forbes Nash, Jr. Then, Chapters 34-46 focus on his schizophrenic downfall and "lost" state of mind. By the end of the book, (Chapters 47-50) John Nash Jr. starts to reawaken to the simple sides of life (flashback from the film, Awakenings). The sad part is that one of his sons is now dealing with his 'on & off switch' mind and John Nash, Jr. is the caretaker. It reminds us of the mystery of the human mind and how no ONE is immune to getting a distorted view of things. Balance in Life is so important. A great biography of a great man who knew & knows great things of which future greatness will continue to stem from.
