Book Title: A Beautiful Mind
Desc:

At twenty-one, John Nash was a brilliant and highly eccentric mathematician at Princeton University when he invented game theory—the most influential theory of rational human behaviour of our time.

Beset by bizarre delusions and repeatedly incarcerated in mental hospitals, Nash spent most of the next three decades as a silent, ghost-like figure haunting the Princeton campus. At sixty he was all but forgotten, when twin miracles—an almost unprecedented remission of schizophrenia and a decision by the Nobel Prize Committee to honour his great achievement—restored the world to him.
