The Quest For Cosmic Justice
by Thomas Sowell

View in Library Catalog

This is a great read that gets to the point without needing too much of a background in the topic. Of course it encourages or entices the reader to look into mentioned events on their own. It provides a logical counter-point to the views and opinions being pushed out in mainstream media currently.

It was an entertaining read. Focused more on romance than the haunting in a lot of ways, but still a fun read.

A Beautiful Mind
by Sylvia Nasar

View in Library Catalog

This is an impeccable read about an American math genius, John Nash, and his social-emotional-intellectual interactions with constituent genius acquaintances at Princeton (including his "heroes," Albert Einstein and John von Neumann), MIT and beyond. Through Sylvia Nasar, we journey through the highs of Nash's mental aptitude to the bowels of his paranoid schizophrenia, and the awkward interactions he encounters in his quest for greatness. ***SPOILER ALERT!!!*** (Stop reading now if you believe that "less is more!") Irrational thoughts and conspiracies begin to haunt Nash as he embraces his "crumbling math career" at the young age of 30. Read this book to explore the humanity of this American genius, John Nash, and how he defies the mathematical odds in continuing to thrive - a genius, a truly "beautiful mind" - AFTER schizophrenia and earning a Nobel Peace Prize.
