A Beautiful Mind, Indeed
I'm working on a book at the moment that humorously analyzes the differences between movies based on actual events and the actuality of those actual events. The first entry is on A Beautiful Mind, and I was fact-checking the specific name of the specific theory that Nash won his Nobel for. (According to the site, he and the two other economists won for "their pioneering analysis of equilibria in the theory of non-cooperative games.") But, the thing that really knocked me out was Nash's autobiography.
