It's great fun reading the book and following the train of thoughts is enjoyable and simple enough ... at least for somebody with a basic understanding in maths and maybe some AI knowledge. So if you started to read Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid but never finished it, this is a much easier and more pragmatic read than Hofstaedter's more generic book.
It is a serious attempt to discuss the real issues and difficulties with AI research. There is a lot of quite dry material and in places it is repetitive.
It provides terrific insight into the problem of imitating human thinking at a deep level, and I found it very rewarding. It was also very interesting to follow the threads of how he went about doing research, and what he thought of other AI research.
His views of various flavours of AI research were very instructive and inightful I thought.
In summary a good book, but this is not (high quality) brain candy like Godel Escher Bach etc.
