My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I do not understand why people continue to compare this book clear and full of examples with GEB which was interesting for sure, but it certainly did not shine for clarity and simplicity. What Hofstadter was trying to do probably from that moment, and succeeded with this book that uses clear words to explain the language and analogies, tautological? maybe, but it works!

Non capisco come mai le persone continuino a paragonare questo libro chiaro e pieno di esempi con GEB che era bello, per caritá, ma certo non brillava per chiarezza e semplicitá. Quello che Hofstadter stava provando a fare probabilmente da quel momento gli é riuscito con questo libro che usa parole chiare per spiegare il linguaggio e le analogie, tautologico? forse, peró funziona!

THANKS TO NETGALLEY AND BASIC BOOKS GROUP FOR THE PREVIEW!
