Chaitin's latest book on The Limits of Mathematics:

"In a nutshell, Gödel discovered incompleteness,
 Turing discovered uncomputability, and I discovered
 randomness---that's the amazing fact that some
 mathematical statements are true for no reason,
 they're true by accident. There can be no
 ``theory of everything,'' at least not in mathematics.
 Maybe in physics!"
