Synopsis

Much of math history comes to us from early astrologers who needed to be able to describe and record what they saw in the night sky. Whether you were the kings court astrologer or a farmer marking the best time for planting, timekeeping and numbers really mattered. Mistake a numerical pattern of petals and you could be poisoned. Lose the rhythm of a sacred dance or the meter of a ritually told story and the intricately woven threads that hold life together were spoiled. Ignore the celestial clock of equinoxes and solstices, and youd risk being caught short of food for the winter. Shessos friendly tone and clear grasp of the information make the math go down easy in this marvelous book.
