4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read
Nice to learn something about the man behind a well known mathematical series. The Da Vinci Code made reference to it, this is so much better.

1.0 out of 5 stars boring
Little maths and the author managed to write 150 pages on a man he admitted he knew nothing about.
Avoid. Wikipedia is much better.
