No. 37: I Am A Strange Loop, by Douglas R. Hofstadter

Douglas R. Hofstadter's self-help book, 'I Am A Strange Loop', has landed at No. 37 on our list of the Top 100 self-help books of all time.

Classic Self-Help BooksFilled with fascinating theories on the inner workings of the mind, “I Am a Strange Loop” is mathematician and physicist Douglas Hofstadter’s look at what constitutes “self.” His theory: the brain is not much different than a looping analogy machine. Everything we encounter in life, we compare with something we’ve previously encountered. We’re continually adding to this mental repository, so that certain loops become well-tread. It’s these well-tread loops that constitute our personalities. As Hofstadter takes this analogy deeper and deeper into his personal life (touching often on his wife’s death of cancer), the power of it becomes more and more magical. Not as easy as other books on the list, it will definitely alter the way you perceive your mind.
