Godel, Escher, Bach : An Eternal Golden Braid

Douglas Hofstadter's classic work bares the tagline a metaphorical fugue on minds and machines in the spirit of Lewis Carroll. It is an epic writing, both in size and scope. Hofstadter has published many good books, but this initial offering will likely always be his greatest. It is a long and complicated read, but if you make it through all 824 pages- you will not be disappointed.
