THE CLASSy one

I sense that this is getting quite monotonous,I can't help but write about this wonderful book I've read .this makes Erich segal my favorite writer .This is about five students who studied at Harvard university.all these five have different back grounds but later make a terrific impact on the world .
For all those whose world politics/history is a bit hazy this is the one book.It puts these things quite simply in the backdrop of the main story.
what amazes me is their ease in getting their dates(I wonder if I know the definition of a date).
But one thing was put superbly -as what happens at both sides of the college gate.a song in telugu goes "college lo maharajulu ee gate daataka prajalavuduru" it tells how people have to make compromises after they leave the college gate.
The one quote which i liked very much -"human beings can't face too much of reality".

A Very Beautiful Mind


it was not a love story,and not a thriller it is just a biography of a human being named prof John Forbes Nash, professor of MIT .i never thought a biography can be written in such an elegant way. it is about this man who was genious who later turned into mad and later triumphs by winning a nobel in economics
no doubt this man was a genious,but can i, ( a mere mortal ), question his sanity bcoz he dumped his first mistress and that he was always arrogant to wards his peers?
but this is the man who made most significant contribution towards game theory(which i hardly understood).
but this was a very great book which described the plight of schizophrenia patients and what takes it to be a prof at princeton and how r these nobel winners like ,its like they a born to get it
