Interesting stories but the main issues are (1) too much waxing about Mathematica and whether folks like Gödel would have liked it and (2) no references. Not a one! Some of the anecdotes I know where he got them; why be ashamed to mention them? I realize these are blog posts
converted to a book, but that's no excuse.

Anyway, such is the case with Wolfram lately--a few good sentences on creativity methods, and he is a smart guy, but with the academic rigor of a novel. ( )
