I made it through V1 and half of volume 2 a few years ago, and found myself frustrated.

For myself, Godel Escher and Bach feels to me to be more useful as a programmer mindset book (or is that just me) or Unix Power Tools for practical guidelines,

And yeah - a lot of it is above my level of mathematical sophistication - I topped off at modern algebra, and I concede I fin it frustrating that I can have a reasonable grasp of number theory, encryption, and matrix arithmetic, and still be going "Wait, whut?" in these.
