Review quote

"Magnificent.... A stimulating exploration of both the power and the limitations of the human intellect.... Goldstein is an excellent choice for this installment of Norton's Great Discoveries series: Her philosophical background makes her a sure guide to the underlying ideas, and she brings a novelistic depth of character and atmosphere ... to her sympathetic depiction of the logician's tortured psyche, as his relentless search for logical patterns ... gradually darkened into paranoia."
