This is a very personal book. Pickover's love for language and the secrets of words, his fascination with the nature of reality, his scientific insights and love for odd people and aberrant thinking and his roots in Jewish tradition are the vessels for making this book a tour the force of old and new concepts and where they are connected. It's about literature. It's about science. It's about Mind.
It's about Pickover himself, his visions, his passions and his writing.
He constantly invites the reader to participate and react.
After finishing the book I experienced something akin to what he says in his epilogue:'My feet are tired, but my spirit soars.'
A great book for people who like limitless thinking.
It triggered a creative stream of thought for me, and new ideas and thoughts about the world just keep flowing along. What if...?
I'm even considering checking Marcel Proust out of the library.
Don't read this book unless you're ready to step into the "shift". (Don't worry, there's hardly any sex in it.)
