This booklet makes use of the spiral form as a key to a mess of odd and likely disparate tales approximately artwork, nature, technological know-how, arithmetic, and the human endeavour. In a fashion, the e-book is itself equipped as a spiral, with virtually disconnected chapters circling round and shutting in at the universal subject matter. a selected energy of the booklet is its super cross-disciplinary nature - every little thing is enjoyable, and every thing is attached! while, the writer places nice emphasis on mathematical and medical correctness, against this, probably, with a few previous books on spirals. topics contain the mathematical houses of spirals, sea shells, solar plant life, Greek structure, air ships, the historical past of arithmetic, spiral galaxies, the anatomy of the human hand, the paintings of prehistoric Europe, Alfred Hitchcock, and spider webs, to call a couple of.
