Wonderful! Made me see math in a whole new light- now I appreciate the history behind math, this theorem, and all the mathematicians- both named and unnamed that have changed this world. Math seems so complex, and this book really highlighted it, yet at the same time makes even a hater of math see how beautiful it can be. Covering history from Babylonians, the wedge-shaped writing called cuneiform, as well Greeks, Pythagoras, secret societies, Archimedes, as well as theorems, diagrams, postulates, numbers, Fibonacci, and the Golden Ratio and MUCH MORE!
