Books: Gödel, Escher, Bach

Gödel, Escher, Bach is a brilliant, wonder-filled exploration of meaning and information and consciousness, by Douglas Hofstadter. It is told through strange narratives and intriguing illustrations most drawn from the works of Gödel, Esher, and Bach. The conceptual level of the text is very complex, so this is not an easy read - but it is a very rewarding one.

I am looking forward to reading his other works - but I might need to set aside a year for each one.
