About the Author
Jeffrey Kegler is a published mathematician and former Lecturer at the Yale Medical School who lives in Northern California. He has spent most of his life in the software business, and for many years maintained a solo practice not unlike Josh's in the novel. In 2000 he hit it lucky in the stock market and decided to take time off to write this novel. Jeffrey is the author or coauthor of numerous technical publications. The God Proof is his first novel.

This book does not easily falls into any category. I would call it a philosophical mystery novel. In my personal library I would place it somewhere between the volumes by Douglas Hofstadter and Umberto Eco. The book attempts to intertwine a rigorous historical and intellectual investigation of 20th century most celebrated mathematical work with spiritual journey and legal case. This connection is accomplished mostly at the intellectual level, suggesting the author's point of view on deep philosophical relationship between personal, social and metaphysical realms of existence. However, in my view the book lacks a psychological depth required to make a convincing literary and historical connection between the main characters and their lives. I have enjoyed the philosophical discussion of Goedel's work much more than other threads superimposed over it somewhat artificially. At the same time I must thank the author for being bold in his effort to bring the important and difficult subject to a broad audience.
