Well done wooden books - you've done it again....
As with all the wooden books i've purchased so far these little friends are excellent. Well designed, well written, informative, conscise, beautifully illustrated, WHAT GEMS !
'The Golden Section' covers the fibonacci sequence, growth, natural form, pi, sacred geometry, architecture, the golden mean and a whole lot more. Nicely written with practical tips and a wealth of information on the subject, and as with all wooden books the illustrations are both excellent and usefull.
These little books are a resource for the whole family to enjoy and learn through !
HIGHLY RECOMENDED :)

I found this series of books recently and am in the process of buying them all, one by one. So far I have not been disappointed. This one is as good as expected - lots of info in a sweet little book. The information is not too simple, it could push you if you don't know much maths but all the info is presented in such a good manner it will be a very pleasant experience. Totally 100% recommended.

I ordered this book on the recommendation of a friend/colleague. The book arrived speedily, in excellent condition and is interesting and informative. At last I finally understand the Golden Section -as someone who is not a natural mathematician that's no mean feat!

For a glorious tome of detailed diagrams, pictorial representations and weighty text about the inherent greatness of nature's proportions this book is too small. The quick reference / mini psuedo journal format is great but doesn't lend itself very well to constant reference and perusal.

For a book with such a small page size the print is adequately clear but the many detailed illustrations are too small.

This book is very comprehensive as far as the golden section is concerned and very nice printed with very nice pictoric examples of where and how it has been used. I strongly recommend it.

I was fortunate enough to hear Scott talk in Bristol fairly recently and found this book reinforced all of what he spoke about. Excellent book and even the most mathematically adverse people should receive something positive from this book. Very Good.

I purchased this item as part of a set as I was teaching the 'Fibonacci Sequence' to my art class at school. A very good and insightful guide, I would highly recommend the book and indeed, the series of which it belongs.
