Review

If you were thinking that the “creative” world, where all the artists hang out, and the “technological” world, full of coders in T-shirts, were forever separated from each other, then this is the book for you: Chandra is prepared to prove, in languages as disparate as C# and Sanskrit, that these worlds are intimately intertwined, and that ultimately, standards of beauty exist because they are rigorous, and not because several people at the same level of subjectivity happen to agree. It helps that Chandra, a coder and an artist in his own right, conveys these thoughts with considerable rigor of his own.
