My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Interesting biography that mostly demystifies Gödel by placing his live in a deeper historical context and his work in a more specific context. I read it because of the anorexia angle, but enjoyed the math part a lot more. Overall, not a strong recommendation unless you are very into turn of the century math and logic, Princeton, or weird academic wives.
