It was a difficult read for me and I never made it through to the end. I know it was made into a movie and that might be a better choice for me.
It was too detailed in a way that was technical. I thought it would be more story-like but it was more textbook-like.

Dense, rich biography of a fascinating person. Reveals much more than the great movie did.

Engrossing, tragic and ultimately uplifiting -- particularly for one who parented a child that shares much with subject John Nash. The movie does not touch the depth of his story. This is a compelling book.
