I have never seen anything quite like this book. It has a youthful vitality and a wonderful brilliance, and I think that it may become something of a classic. --Martin Gardner, Scientific American
In Some Ways, Godel, Escher, Bach is an entire humanistic education between the covers of a single book. So, for my next visit to a desert island, give me sun, Sand, water and GEB, and I'll live happily ever after. --John L. Casti, Nature
Every few decades an unknown author brings out a book of such depth, clarity, range, wit, beauty and originality that it is recognized at once as a major literary event. This is such a work. --Jeremy Bernstein

It was so noisy and intense, that even at the height of my thrash metal phase, I could only really bear to listen to one or two songs.
It's one of my favourite albums for that very reason.
This book is the same. It's quite intense, and I find myself reading the same few chapters over and over again, before baiiling out.
However, I now know enough frighteningly complex information that I have to wear a warning sign at parties.
I find it surprisingly easy to understand but then I could have misunderstood it and not know...
If you like paradoxes and the work of Escher you will love it.
