It's a comprehensive biography all right. The problem is that it's too comprehensive. For example, consider the author's description of the qualifying meeting debate for the Nobel Prize. Is it really necessary to describe where in the room the participants sat? Surprisingly, given the length of this tome, the author pays little focus on Nash's actual contribution to the mathematics; instead the book reads mostly as a soap opera. At 16 audio CD's, for all but the most dedicated Nash-o-phile, it's at least 8 CD's too long. A better choice is probably Nash's own Nobel Prize award -autobiography.
