A fascinating and comprehensive investigation into the perfect geometry of the natural world, originally published in 1914. The book studies and explores the spiral, or helix, and its mathematical expression through The Golden Ratio. The Curves of Life will excite both naturalists and mathematicians. The book should also appeal to market technicians involved with Fibonacci sequencing and Elliot Wave analysis. This is an intense read and not something most of us can pour through quickly, so while I highly recommend it to people interested in this subject, be prepared for a major commitment. Be sure to do a Look Inside to review the table of contents and verify your interest. Those who take the plunge will be well rewarded. This is a very special book.
