The Proof and Paradox of Kurt Gödel

Rebecca Goldstein 2005 / 510.92 GOL / Tigard Library

This book seems mostly about the Vienna and Princeton of Gödel and contemporaries, not mathematics. I plodded, then skimmed, then abandoned it. This book might provide more math and less chat' I will find a different book for that. Later on, there is more about Godel's proofs, but in somewhat incomprehensible verbiage rather than symbols.
