Ananyo Bhattacharya’s MAN FROM THE FUTURE is chosen as a Book of the Year by The Financial Times

“A splendid biography of one of the most brilliant, unpredictable and ultimately dangerous mathematicians of the 20th century. Von Neumann played key roles in developing computer science, quantum mechanics and game theory. After working on the Manhattan Project he became a nuclear weapons enthusiast — and was one of the inspirations for the mad scientist in the 1964 film Dr Strangelove.”
