I prefer blonds.



In any case, I am curious why you want to study the subject.

I think it's interesting, so far.

I would appreciate your sharing your thoughts on it.
The book is only about maths, so any philosophical consequences or conjectures need to be supplied by the reader or supplemental reading. However, the book is extremely compact, with proofs on almost every page, and covers a large range of provocative results, so there's plenty to think about. Due to the compactness, for someone like me, who knows very little maths, there's not much immediately accessible interesting content, but the presentation makes it easy to fill the gaps with a bit of Googling. Overall, I'd say it's a good book and a useful complement to the more philosophically orientated stuff that can be found on the internet.
