I read a couple of specific chapters of this in college when I was researching for a paper on naive set theory. This book is intensely meta; it's full of logic puzzles and poems and cultural references and self-referential humor and all kinds of bizarre synthesis between disciplines. I would love to take the time to read the entire thing... someday.
