The Golden Ratio

Written on December 27, 2011. Written by .

This is one of your standard math-popularization books, but it is a pretty interesting one at least. I liked the parts that provided interesting facts about the golden ratio and the fibonacci sequence. However, there was also a lot of garbage about the golden ratio in art, which basically amounted to saying that the golden ratio really wasn’t present at all, and it is just a habit of academicians to try to make the golden ratio appear somewhere in some historical object. This book is probably one of the most polished references of the golden ratio; there are more comprehensive documents on the internet, but this book is better organized.
