A concise and useful handbook on the Golden Section—also known as the Golden Ratio and Golden Mean. The Golden Section is a line segment divided into two parts, such that the ratio of the short half to the long half is equal to the ratio of the long half to the whole. It is one of the most elegant and beautiful quarks of the mathematical universe because of its combination of elegance and simplicity—hence the divine nature of its name. Drawing on art, architecture, philosophy, nature, mathematics, geometry, and music—and beautifully illustrated in the Wooden Books fashion with all manner of images—The Golden Section will tell the story of this remarkable construct and its wide ranging impact on civilization and the natural world.
