Críticas:

" An absolutely wonderful book. Godel and Turning tried to defy time, and failed, so the only way to bring them back is through the imagination. It requires a very wise and special imagination, with a powerful and quirky mind of her own, to give a plausible portrait of such geniuses. Janna Levin is a gifted stylist and with this compelling book, she has transcended the category of scientists who write books to become simply one of our most interesting contemporary writers."
- Lee Smolin, author of "The Life of The Cosmos" and "Three Roads to Quantum Gravity
"
" I love the contrast of Turing's mechanized view of the world with Godel's more openended ' incompleteness.' "A Madman Dreams of Turing Machines "is a wonderfully imagined book."
- Alan Lightman, author of "Einstein's Dreams"
"
"" "A Madman Dreams of Turing Machines "is a wonderfully original book. Janna Levin's compelling narrative artfully straddles the realms of fiction and non-fiction, allowing us to viscerally experience the tortured lives of two towering intellects- Godel and Turing- while learning how each, in his own way, left a profound imprint on human thought."
- Brian Greene, author of "The Elegant Universe
"

Reseña del editor:

Kurt Gödel’s Incompleteness Theorems sent shivers through Vienna’s intellectual circles and directly challenged Ludwig Wittgenstein’s dominant philosophy. Alan Turing’s mathematical genius helped him break the Nazi Enigma Code during WWII. Though they never met, their lives strangely mirrored one another—both were brilliant, and both met with tragic ends. Here, a mysterious narrator intertwines these parallel lives into a double helix of genius and anguish, wonderfully capturing not only two radiant, fragile minds but also the zeitgeist of the era.
