i am almost finished with a very cool book...

a seamless blend of science, philosophy, and faith (kinda like science in real life :-)...powerfully literary...virtually every line is packed with thought provoking profundity

similar in fashion to lewis carroll's work

should be required reading for every university student

i do not agree with some of the philosophical premises...but it is a GREAT read

from the back cover...

one of the most exciting and original books of many a publishing season ---science 80

a brilliant, creative and very personal synthesis without precident or peer in modern literature ---mathematics magazine

winner of the pulitzer prize

i would also recommend this one for the high school guy that was looking for something challenging...this will challenge in a different way than what he was looking for

don't's not full of math

for your reading and reflecting pleasure...get this one

hofstadter, douglas r. godel, escher, bach: an eternal golden braid (vintage/random house, new york) 1979.
