I love to read biographies, they are interesting, give broader perspective and allow to learn more about people I'm interested in. this one is excellent. You read it not as a normal biography but a real-life fiction book.Although it's a biography ot is really fast-paced and I just couldn't put it down. And if you enjoyed the movie, you will enjoy this book for sure too. Moreover, here you can find much more information about Nash, his life and illness. In the book we get to know about his youth, life at college and a great pressure among other mathematicians to be the best as well as the illness and the way of recovery. Great, engaging and inspiring.
