It is a shame that ore information is not given to this subject during the educational processes in our culture.
Definitely worth the time required to read slowly and carefully to get the full meaning. Fun simple and to the point. I liked this work in part because there was no contamination of the ideas from the author.
This book will change the way you think about math, science, philosophy and music. You will revisit concepts that you thought you knew something about but never fully appreciated.
