There's an excellent review of this over on Amazon.

http://www.amazon.com/review/RV1SYUD43Z2S8/ref=cm_cr_dp_title?ie=UTF8&ASIN=1...

Normally, I'm not a fan of reviews that just suggest going elsewhere to read them, but that one covers all the details, including the author's superficial knowledge in the area. It's really a pamphlet, more than an actual book, with perhaps 50 actual pages (and that includes the references at the end). One of the nicest things in the review (by Stephen E. Robbins) is the suggestion of better things to read, including Doug Hofstadter's latest tome (I'm waiting for the Cliff Notes; Doug's a bit wordy for my tastes).

Should you get and read this? I paid 26 cents for the honor, which seems about right. I don't know that you'll gain much from reading it, but perhaps it'll make you think in new directions, or even better, cause you to look for alternative viewpoints.

Glad mine's an eBook. ( )
