John C. Worsley was born in 1978 in Sacramento, California, but has spent the last twenty years in idyllic Portland, Oregon. His passion from an early age lay in self-taught creative endeavors such as drawing, writing, and composing typically moody, adolescent music on the family piano. In addition to compulsively and self-consciously writing about himself in the third-person, his credits include having attended a mostly futile year of college at the University of Oregon, having released electronic music under the monikers lxl, xszi, and 12:24, co-founding a successful technology company, writing a 600-page book on SQL, developing Yet Another Superfluous Three-Letter Web Language, contributing 3D graphics and programming to Gus Van Sant's Elephant.

- A Beautiful Mind's John Nash is less complex than the real one. - By Chris Suellentrop - Slate Magazine
Here's what's true in Ron Howard's movie A Beautiful Mind—or, at least, here's what corresponds to Sylvia Nasar's biography of the same name: The mathematician John Forbes Nash Jr. attended graduate school at Princeton, where he was arrogant, childish, and brilliant.

- Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus. Wikipedia
Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus (published in May 1992) is a book by John Gray offering many suggestions for improving husband-wife relationships by understanding the emotional needs of the opposite sex. The book relies heavily on the notion that men and women are as different as beings from other planets. When discussing relations with the opposite sex, one often hears the complaint, "It's like she's from another planet!" Gray adopts this metaphor as the central theme of all his books and seminars, likening men and women to the classical Greek god Mars and goddess Venus as ideal types.

- Prisoner's Dilemma, William Poundstone - Fishpond.com.au
John von Neumann invented the digital computer, played a key role in the development of the atom bomb, constructed a branch of mathematics known as game theory, and became a defender of a movement to bomb the Russians before they could bomb us. Now comes a biography of this controversial genius and an exploration of his greatest idea--one that nearly triggered a nuclear war in 1950. Photographs.
