Summary
John Nash, called "the most remarkable mathematician of the second half of the century, " suffered a devastating breakdown at the age of thirty. He claimed that aliens were sending him messages, became obsessed with secret numbers and saw conspiracies all around him. Diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, Nash spent a decade in and out of mental hospitals, surviving with the support of his wife and former colleagues. During that time, a mathematical proof he'd written at the age of twenty became a foundation of modern economics. Sometime in the 1980s, he gradually began to recover. In 1994, Nash capped his remarkable return from madness by winning the Nobel Prize. Nash's story was the inspiration for the award-winning film, A beautiful mind
