Godel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid by Douglas R. Hofstadter
Book of the week 2
“Published for the first time 23 years ago, Godel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid by D.R. Hofstadter continues to be a must read book.
Even if it is a popular science kind of book it is not to be taken lightly as a holiday pass time. The reason is not related to the style, which is impressively clear and easy flowing for such an original synthesis of diverse advanced topics. It is related to the nostalgia that kicks in both former high school mathletes and artist spirits, generating an urge to dig further in the marvels of cognition disregarding the surface differences.” Lucian Isar
