How the publisher describes it:
“What was the great and golden secret known to Leonardo Da Vinci, Kepler, Plato and the ancient magicians? Why were they forbidden to reveal it? Can there really be a key to nature and life itself?”
Review by Peter Hall
“Beautifully presented and brought to life”
Wooden Books have added yet another success to their catalogue. If you are looking for a book to fascinate your Da Vinci Code readers - look no further. The mathematics of the Golden Section are beautifully presented and brought to life.
From Fibonacci sequences through phyllotaxis patterns to melody and harmony - all is here. Each page is richly decorated with beautiful drawings and diagrams. Diagrams of human anatomy, vases, buildings, credit cards - all clearly showing the Golden Section.
This is a fascinating journey through many different areas of mathematics, all linked by the Golden Section. Five brief appendices give further details of the more complex mathematics encountered in the book.
Once again this Wooden Book publication would make an ideal addition to anyone’s mathematical collection - and would be enjoyed by young and old together. Another great book.
