Write The First Customer Review

These essays (mostly from "Scientific American", but several previously unpublished) look at chaos and Chopin, grammar and genetics, racism and Rubik's cube, and countless other subjects. From all this, Hofstadter throws new light on his central theme: how people - and machines - think and feel. The author also wrote "Goedel, Escher, Bach", which won the Pulitzer Prize.
