A biography of Kurt Godel that includes a look at his First and Second Incompleteness theorem which showed that an arithmetical proposition that is both true and unprovable within the formal system under consideration. The theorems were much embraced in mathematics and philosophy. The narrative is well done and the theorems are well explained. Worth reading if you are interested.
