This is an excellent unauthorized biography of mathematical genius John Nash, this is a journey of John Nash from childhood to his winning nobel peace prize for economics in 1994. The book is divided into five parts, the first two parts of the book covers his geniuses and his contribution to mathematics and number theory. The second half – part 3 & part 4 covers his marriage life and his illness Schizophrenia. The last part of the book covers his nobel prize-winning and reawakening of the genius from Schizophrenia.

“John Forbes Nash, Jr. (born June 13, 1928) is an American mathematician  whose works in game theory, differential geometry, and partial differential equations have provided insight into the forces that govern chance and events inside complex systems in daily life. His theories are used in market economics, computing, evolutionary biology, artificial intelligence, accounting, politics and military theory. Serving as a Senior Research Mathematician at Princeton University during the latter part of his life, he shared the 1994 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences with game theorists Reinhard Selten and John Harsanyi.[src : Wikipedia]

This book doesn’t has much of mathematics in it, so no need tp worry if you’re not a mathematician or know very less maths. In this book we are introduced to game theory and Nash contribution to game theory by introducing the Equilibrium point also know as ‘Nash Equilibrium’. It’s not kind of not putdownalbe book but a very interesting and deep researched work of Sylvia Nasar’s. A very good biography and very good read, it’s very hard to put it in review without giving away the story, so I won’t spoil the story. If you like Maths and Game theory and want to know the life of genius who saw things very differently than others then go read this book.

How could you, a mathematician, believe that extraterrestrials were sending you messages?” the visitor from Harvard asked the West Virginian with the movie-star looks and Olympian manner.

“Because the ideas I had about supernatural beings came to me the same way my mathematical ideas did,” came the answer. “So I took them seriously.”

Thus begins the true story of John Nash, the mathematical genius who was a legend by age thirty when he slipped into madness, and who — thanks to the selflessness of a beautiful woman and the loyalty of the mathematics community — emerged after decades of ghostlike existence to win a Nobel Prize and world acclaim. The inspiration for a major motion picture, Sylvia Nasar’s award-winning biography is a drama about the mystery of the human mind, triumph over incredible adversity, and the healing power of love.

Unidentified Flying Objects, Flying Soccer’s or Unidentified Flying Aircraft, whatever you call them, they remained as the mystery to many people since many years.

The time when humans got intelligence [We actually don’t know till now, when actually we got intelligence?], we wondered whether we are the only intelligent creatures in the whole universe or some other Intelligent species exist?, till date we believed that we are the only intelligent species in the whole universe of 100+ billion galaxies, each galaxy having 100+ billion solar systems like us, and each solar system has many planets.

So, Do UFO’s Really exists?, are there a Intelligent life some where in the vicinity of the universe ? are we the only intelligent species in whole universe of billions of earth like planets ? is life only exists at planet earth ?

The Name UFO coined by United State Air Force in 1952, after many UFO sighting reported. The term UFO got more popular after pilot Kenneth Arnold in June 24 1947 reported the UFO (Unidentified Flying Objects).

Some scientist believe that these sighting of UFO are just some rubber balloons or natural phenomenon or comet. [Are they ?]

One of the well known UFO incident is : Roswell UFO Incident which took place in July of 1947, where many eye witness believe that they saw Alien Creatures and there bodies were taken by US army. The US Army also announced that they have the flying soccer in there possession.

There are many UFO sighting through out the world, it doesn’t make any sense that every one misunderstood Rubber Balloon or Comet as UFO. If we consider 90% of sighting as hoax, then 10% must have to be true.

Some believe that Governments are covering up the whole UFO and Alien contacts with earth. There are even reports that many people who saw the UFO are threatened by some men in black, for example Maury Island incident June 1947, eye witness saw some men in black came to cover up this whole incident. Who are they? Government secret agents. Some Ufologist believe that they are aliens or androids controlled by aliens who come to cover up the aliens action on the earth. Like Men In Black movie, where Government secrets agents erases all the information from eye witness who saw aliens or ufo’s.

Some Ufologist even believe that we have been contacted by third kind in the past, Erich von Däniken one of the well known Ufologist explains how alien made contact with us in past and how we misunderstood them as gods in his best selling book Chariots of the Gods?

There are certain questions Ufologist ask like :
1. Why does Nazca Lines exist?.
2. Why does Corp Circles exist?.
3. Do men in black really exist? or they are just hoax?
4. Do Mayan’s calender indicating the return of Aliens to earth in 2012 or world is really going to end?

In August 15, 1977 Dr. Jerry R. Ehman detected a strong narrow band radio signal, while working on a SETI(Search For Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) project at The Big Ear radio telescope of Ohio State University It is believed that the signal came from some other planet which not from our solar system.

Ehman circled the signal on computer printout and wrote the single word on it “WOW!” and this became the name of the signal.


WOW! Signal

They all tried for many days in the same direction from where they received this signal but never got it back. According to well known theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, They might sent this signal say some two hundred years ago, if we send the signal back to them,  it will take the same amount of time to reach them but by the time our radio signal reach them, they might have stopped listening.



The next question comes here is, if they exists then how will they look like ? will they look like Humans [Some Ufologist believes so] or will they look like James Cameraon’s Avatar? or they look like Jadoo in Koi mil gaya or will they look like Aliens in Aliens v/s Predator movie (AVP) ?

Will these mysteries surrounding around UFO’s, Aliens will ever be solved? Will we ever discover the other intelligent species in universe ? Are we alone in the whole universe? Are we really been contacted by Aliens in past?
