By Michael S. Schneider

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

Michael Schneider leads us on a awesome, lavishly illustrated trip alongside the numbers one via ten to discover the mathematical ideas made noticeable in flora, shells, crystals, crops, and the human physique, expressed within the symbolic language of folks sayings and fairy stories, fable and faith, artwork and structure. this can be a new view of arithmetic, no longer the only we realized in school yet a accomplished consultant to the styles that recur during the universe and underlie human affairs.

  • How a snowflake is like Stonehenge, and a beehive like a calendar.

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

  • And even more.
