The Universe could be a Mystery,
But it truly is No Secret

Michael Schneider leads us on a outstanding, lavishly illustrated trip alongside the numbers one via ten to discover the mathematical rules made obvious in plants, shells, crystals, vegetation, and the human physique, expressed within the symbolic language of folks sayings and fairy stories, fable and faith, artwork and structure. it is a new view of arithmetic, no longer the only we realized in class yet a accomplished advisor to the styles that recur in the course of the universe and underlie human affairs. A Beginner's consultant to developing, the Universe indicates you:

  • How our ten palms carry the secrets and techniques of either a lobster and a cathedral.

  • And even more.
