Well written and certainly thorough. John Nash lived an interesting life, but he doesn't come across as a particularly likable person (or one to whom it is particularly easy to relate).

A beautiful mind and a beautiful biography. They don't come better than this. A great read.

The movie's fine as a dramatization (although not great as an adaptation, and often more fiction than fact), but the book is much better. The real story would be hard to film properly, since the drama is as much one of ideas as of people.
