Product description

Review

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

Book Description

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize A metaphorical fugue on minds and machines in the spirit of Lewis Carroll
