really liked it

Well, I could follow the Bach and the Escher, but NOT the Godel. He was a mathematician and philosopher who came up with the "incompleteness theorem". Yep. That's right. This was really a magical, super-complicated, mind-boggling comparison of Bach's music, Escher's art and Godel's mathematical theories. I love to read things like this once in a while to really test my brain capacity. Loved it. Even though I felt like sleeping for a decade after each chapter. I'll re-visit this again one day.
