West Virginia: Follow Your Own Noon
John Nash and his sister Martha were very different. Where Martha was sociable, funny, and engaging, John was solitary, curious, and awkward. The people of Bluefield, West Virginia wondered if there was something wrong with John, but his mother paid no attention. She knew that he actually had extraordinary gifts yet to be manifest — and she was right. All the awkward interactions John had experienced in his youth would translate one day into an elegant mathematical theory that would win him a Nobel Prize.
