## Read full description of the books:

In "The Emporer's New Mind," physicist Penrose argues that there are facets of human thinking, of imagination, that can never be emulated by a machine. Exploring a dazzling array of topics--complex numbers, black holes, entropy, quasicrystals, brain structure & the physical processes of consciousness--he demonstrates that laws even more wondrously complex than those of quantum mechanics are essential for the operation of a mind.
