loved the book!
I have found few books online that I have not been able to put down, but this was one. I am amazed as to how much information survived about John Nash's history--the author has done an admirable job of pulling it all together.
Dont let the mathematical themes scare you either. Although the technical side of John Nash is well represented, the focus of the biography is on Dr. Nash's personal story--a story that is both inspirational and disturbing.
I have not heard the unabridged version, but found no trouble getting through the full version. In fact, by the end of the recording I was sorry it was so short.
In contrast to the first reviewer, I found the narrator to be very good. The comment that the narrator sounded like a psychiatrist may be because psychiatric topics are discussed (a key part of Nash's life was his scitzophrenia), not because the reading is dry.
