Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid

Yesterday I finished reading this great book by Douglas Richard Hofstadter.
Great explanation of Gödel's incompleteness theorems with references to Bach's fugues and Escher's artworks, zen buddhism, molecular biology, NDA, RNA, programming and AI, reductionism and holism.
Great food for thought! I like self-references and recursions! This book is worth re-reading to find something new.
A lot of good references and further reading.
Recommend to everyone interested in mathematics, art, music and AI.
