Mind and Matter: A Life in Math and Football
by John Urschel and Louisa Thomas
In this bestselling autobiography, John Urschel, mathematician and former offensive lineman for the Baltimore Ravens, tells the story of a life balanced between two passions. What began as an insatiable appetite for puzzles as a child developed into mastery of the elegant systems and rules of mathematics. But football challenged Urschel in an entirely different way, and he became addicted to the physical contact of the sport. Against the odds, Urschel found a way to manage his double life as a scholar and an athlete, playing in the NFL for the Baltimore Ravens while simultaneously pursuing a PhD in mathematics at MIT.
