I bought this book when it first came out a few years ago. There were a heap of five star reviews at that time - I don't know what Amazon has done with them all but they're not here any more. The book however, still is! This is one of those simple little books which gets under your skin and can change the way you look at almost everything. David Wade opens your eyes to the patterns nature makes at every scale. A more comprehensive book on the same subject is The Self-Made Tapestry by Philip Ball, but Li somehow manages to do something to the reader which Ball's book fails to do. A great book for designers, artists, philosophers and people with open eyes everywhere.

What I like abut these little booklets are that they try to make available some fascinating new aspects of science and art for people who would simply not look at anything which investigates these aspects in any depth.

This is a little book on Li, meaning a relation between pattern and principle so that Li means a "dynamic formation" or really something which has been captured as it is being created. It seems to be a kind of interaction between form and energy.

Each two page section briefly describes something of interest which demonstrates Li and the opposing page shows these aspects in photographs. Consider for example the following: nerve cell branching, bacterial growth patterns, surface patterns in convection cells, vascular cell structures in plants, stress cracks in drying mud.

A wonderful little book which may even lead to real advances in science or art. For that alone this set of booklets are gems.

I bought this book for myself as I am a creative and artistic person and I loved every page. I have not heard of the word LI before and wonder what the character in Chinese would be?

This is less of a treatise on geometry or physics as it focuses on the patterns that are not mathematically exact or perfectly symmetrical, but nonetheless universal, as each of them occurs on different scales and in different ways. Another beautiful and thought provoking book by "Wooden Books".

I was very disappointed by my purchase. I had expected a bettrr quality as well as an A4 larger format and it was less than A5. I suppose I should've returned it but was too lazy. Can't fault speed of delivery as it came soon after ordering.

A nicely presented book, with some nice images. However there is almost no substance. The book is very small and is rather expensive for so little content. It is almost as if the author scanned some information from wikipedia and photoshopped images found online to suit the style of the book.

A minor issue on quality, some of the pages hadn't been cut properly at the opening corner.
