A Geometric Analysis of The Platonic Solids and Other Semi-Regular Ployhedra(With an Introduction to the Phi Ratio) has 140 full color illustrations, well known "The Fibonacci Series" and many more geometrical figures in natural existence. If the sound of these words: tetrahedron, cube, phi ratio, rectangle, icosahedron, semi-regular polyhedra, rhombic triacontahedron sound familiar to you or makes you curious to learn, i say this book is for you. Let me help you to learn first terminology in this book 'poly hedron" which means "many faces". Prerequisites for the book are the knowledge of simple algebra and elementary trigonometry. No brainiac math skills required! as the author tells us.
