Simon - The Genius In My Basement

A good friend of mine1 sent me a copy of Simon - The Genius In My Basement’. I feel bad that I have been sat on it for so long - but writing this now as a declaration of FINISHED.

An excellent book - and definitely worth a read. If you are either someone who tracks the world of Mathematics OR you have seen the movie Beautiful Minds’ - the name John Nash might mean something to you. John Nash spent years in Cambridge working with Simon on something called The Monster’.

GoodReads for reviews. As always, this is not an attempt to review - more a highlight of a superb book that is only detailed here because I liked it and you might not have heard of it.
