Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Brilliantly researched, well thought out, magnificent references; this book about the golden ratio, i.e. the Platonic logo(logos!)rithmic section (republic 509d-511) is a genuine supreme masterwork.

To prospective amazon buyers of this book, it must be said that there is absolutely no question that you will aught but love this book and it is impossible that you will regret the purchase of this book.

This book contains research on greek arithmetic's that you absolutely cannot find in ANY other book on the topic; I say this with certainty since I own every book ever published on said topic. An absolute must must own book.
