Great introductory book on Godel´s incompletness theorem. Starts with a clear explanation about how simple axioms become theorems and some of the problems associated with consitency. Next it will guide you through the requirements to grasp Godel´s proof and at the end it will provide a clear explanation on the subject. It will even explain what mathematical formality is all about. Don´t worry about your mathematical background the authors do a great job on explaining everything as simple as possible. Once I started reading I couldn´t stop. I recommend reading it before the formal paper written by Godel itself.

Simply excellent. You will understand this "piece of jewell" (which is not a minor stuff concerning this theorem..)!!!

This book does the best job of explaining a fundamentally opaque subject matter clearly and concisely to the lay reader, especially with the new footnotes added in by Douglas Hofstadter in this editione. i highly recommend this title to those interested in the fundamentals of mathematics, logic, or computer science.
