Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How the World is Made: The Story of Creation According to Sacred Geometry (Hardcover)
Although I can see that this book would be really eye-opening
for anyone unfamiliar with the field of sacred geometry, I'd
let someone borrow it rather than recommend buying it.
Michell is excellent when he is discussing the subject but
unfortunately goes meandering off into gematria at the drop
of a hat and, frankly, the mediocre watercolours that are
scattered throughout the book as padding don't impress me
at all - there are far better illustrations available that
don't look like they were done by a bored child on a rainy day.
He makes some excellent points - and some that I haven't seen
in other works - but IMO this book doesn't deserve the gushing
praise that other reviewers seem happy to award it.
Schneider's "Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe" is
much better and even the little "Wooden Books" quick guide to
Sacred Geometry has its advantages over this more expensive one.
