The Golden Section-otherwise known as phi, the golden mean, or golden ratio-is one of the most elegant and beautiful ratios in the universe. Defined as a line segment divided into two unequal parts, such that the ratio of the shorter portion to the longer portion is the same as the longer portion to the whole, it pops up throughout nature-in water, DNA, the proportions of fish and butterflies, and the number of teeth we possess-as well as in art and architecture, music, philosophy, science, and mathematics.This is the most accessible and appealing guide to the subject ever assembled. Beautifully illustrated, The Golden Section tells the story of this remarkable construct and its wide-ranging influence on civilization and the natural world.… (mehr)

Lovely, illustrated little book that provides a to-the-point introduction to such topics as Phi, Fibonacci Sequence, Phyllotaxis Patters, Lucas Numbers, Spirals, Harmony etc. This book is not difficult to understand despite the mathematical contents. ( )

The Golden Section is part of the Wooden Books series. I am unfamiliar with the series, but perusing the other titles in the series (given on the back flap), other titles in the series indicate the focus to be on science and mathematics. The author, Scott Olsen, is a professor of philosophy. My first reaction to this discover is to wonder why this book was not written by a mathematician, since the golden section (aka golden ratio) is a mathematical concept. After reading through this book, I came to the realization that a philosopher would have sufficient knowledge of the golden ratio and able to present the information as a great mystery, thereby piquing interest.
The title of the book itself makes this book interesting. Who wouldn't want to discover nature's greatest secret? The cover is filled with many different shapes and designs that has the golden ratio. There are very tiny, hard to read print that would make the book more enticing if they were more visible.
The book is well organized by topic. The topics transition fluidly. Olsen begin with an introduction of observations about patterns that permeate the world. These patterns have intrigued philosophers, scientist, mathematicians, musicians, etc... throughout the ages. The book then move to explore how the golden section is seen in the many different aspects of nature. Each page I turn, there is a page of text and the opposite page would be an illustration or math formulas. The book is very short and each topic is covered in 1 or 2 pages. However, the text is sophisticated enough that younger readers in elementary and middle school may have trouble with comprehension. I enjoy the black and white color scheme, but I wonder if students would appreciate more color tones in some of the pictures.
I think this book would be a great introduction to a project on learning ratios and proportions. I could differentiate this project based on the students' interests. For example, have students investigate the golden ratio in music, geometry, art, and biology. ( )

Another beautiful book from Wooden, with some interesting stuff about the golden ratio---although a bit too mystical for my tastes in some places. ( )

A farrago, but an entertaining one.

This is a fun little book about exactly what the title implies. It gives examples of the golden section as it appears in nature and various cultures. It is an affectionately written appreciation piece. ( )
