The authors infectious enthusiasm is put to use in explaining many of the key concepts in the field, starting with the Golden Number and taking the reader on a geometrical journey via Shapes and Solids, through the Fourth Dimension, finishing up with Einsteins Theories of Relativity.Aimed at a general readership, the text makes accessible complex subjects such as Chaos and Fractals. It includes a wealth of the authors own illustrations and features appendices on related topics.Equally suitable as a gift for a youngster or as a nostalgic journey back into the world of mathematics for older readers, John Barnes book is the perfect antidote for anyone whose maths lessons at school are a source of painful memories.

Where once geometry was a source of confusion and frustration, Barnes brings enlightenment and entertainment.
