    1. Fascinating. Shows an extraordinary and intriguing beauty and order in the universe. Why, for instance, do musical harmonic intervals show up in planetary orbits? Or why the number of leaves on many species of growing plants can be predicted by one simple sequence of numbers? The universe doesn't appear to be so random. Recommended for artists who don't get science and scientists who don't get art.

    2. 4 1/2 stars. Fascinating book. Astronomy section was the weakest which was a shame. The music section was the best. A book to pick up and read a section or two rather than reading straight through.

    3. Estoy indeciso en la puntuación que darle, porque por un lado el libro está bien, pero por otro no.

They do a good job of conveying the sense of spirituality that numbers carried at that time. A nice little add-on are the tables at the end that include quick reference for a whole range of math a [...]

    5. Great base entry into the world of the quadrivium as well as a solid telling of the links between sacred geometry, the creation of number (as in the real meaning of such), music (the geometric structure and relationship), and astronomy.
