Well, I have finally gotten to finish reading “Gödel Escher Bach, an Eternal Golden Braid”. The book is so dense with interesting content and information, that it has taken me around a year, with many breaks, to finally get to the end.

This is the most informative and interesting book I have read. Many of the subjects touched upon in the book have appeared in my CS curriculum, but I have really enjoyed the philosophical implications of these topics that GEB discusses so much. Is our brain able to reason about itself ?

I will most certainly come back and reread GEB in the future, it is simply not possible for all this information to sink in after just one reading. Finally, this book should be on the must-read list of any person studying computer science.
