Reviews

"Godel, Escher, Bach was a triumphantly successful presentation of quite difficult concepts for a popular audience. There has been nothing like it in computer science before or since."--Ernest Davis, IEEE Expert
"Every few decades an unknown author brings out a book of such depth, clarity, range, wit, beauty and originality that it is recognized at once as a major literary event. This is such a work."--Martin Gardner, Scientific American
"I have never seen anything quite like this book. It has a youthful vitality and a wonderful brilliance, and I think that it may become something of a classic."--Jeremy Bernstein,

"In some ways, Godel, Escher, Bach is an entire humanistic education between the covers of a single book. So, for my next visit to a desert island, give me sun, sand, water and GEB, and I'll live happily ever after."--John L. Casti, Nature
Winner of the National Book Award in Science
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in General Nonfiction
"A brilliant, creative, and very personal synthesis without precedent or peer in modern literature."--The American Mathematical Monthly
"A huge, sprawling literary marvel, a philosophy book disguised as a book of entertainment disguised as a book of instruction."--Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"A triumph of cleverness, bravura performance."--Parabola
"A wondrous book that unites and explains, in a very entertaining way, many of the important ideas of recent intellectual history."--Commonweal
