6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By David Arzouman on Dec 9 2003
Format: Paperback
There is a gulf between the promise of this book and what it actually delivers. The idea of exploring the deeper meaning of geometry (there is some wonderful insight here), and the approach of making it a doing experience for the reader are both worthy of praise. Unfortunately, like many books of this type, it is also riddled by mistakes: vague and/or spurious conclusions/interpretations, sometimes confusing layouts and printing, typos, misdirections, and enough false statements and faulty calculations that my trust in this book was steadily replaced by skepticism and annoyance. It seemed as though I was doing as much proofreading as learning. Whether all of the fault lies with the author is a question. Perhaps proofreaders and editors are called upon to check material they don't fully grasp. Or perhaps no one concerned expects us to study these books too carefully.

Format: Paperback
I have been looking for a good book on this subject and this one does not disappoint one bit! The author goes through step by step from the simple concepts to the complex complete with many illustrations and even excercises so that you can experience the "magic" of geometry yourself. I could not imagine getting the same level of understanding from a book without all the diagrams to see the relationships. More of a workbook than a text book, but packed with information and history. I would rate this as an essential book for anyone's library who is interested in understanding religious symbols, architecture, mathematics, and the beauty of the creation we find ourselves in.

Format: Paperback
This book is very enjoyable. It not only explains what sacred geometry is, it gives you exercises to do using basic tools like a compass, graph paper and a pencil. After reading and doing the fun and educational illustrations, you'll be looking for sacred geometry everywhere around you as well as spotting it in famous works of art and architecture.

Format: Paperback
This 112 page workbook explores sacred geometry using illustrations from science and art, such as Islamic tiles, atomic structure, architectural proportions and fine art. Nine workbooks within 10 chapters lead one through geometric constructions using only a pencil, compass, straight-edge and graph paper. Includes the Vesica Piscis, Golden Section, Squaring the Circle, Geometry and Music, the Platonic Solids and more. Interspersed with philosophy about the meanings and symbolism of sacred geometry. I love this book and use it in my art.

This book is a brilliant and absolutely mindbending piece of writing. Want to know about the platonic solids, their connections to each other, how these things are used in Indian cosmology, what the number phi (1,618...) has to do with it, how these ancient ideas relate to cutting-edge physics today etc etc? You must be crazy to miss this one. BUY IT NOW!
