Book summary

A lucid, highly readable exploration of the computer models of discovery, creation, and analogical thought developed by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Gödel, Escher, Bach and the Fluid Analogies Research Group. The book features anagram and number puzzles, analogy puzzles involving letter strings or tabletop objects, and fanciful alphabetic styles.

"A remarkable book. At first I said 'too technical and specialized,' but hours later I found I couldn't stop reading.... A marvelous book, illuminating oddities of thought and raising them to profound insights into the nature of human creativity."--Donald A. Norman, Apple Fellow; Professor Emeritus, University of California, San Diego [via]
