4.0 von 5 Sternen Almost There, 9. Mai 2003
Sean Williams and Shane Dix bring fans closer to the finale of the, "New Jedi Order" series with, "Force Heretic II Refugee".

Author Mario Livio has added another wonderful book that bridges the gap between writings meant for the academic and for the layperson. "The Golden Ratio", was not quite as accessible as some other books that I have read, but it is certainly worth the extra effort even if many of the proofs found at the book's end remain a mystery.
The book spent a great deal of time disproving the myths of application that have been attributed to the remarkable relationships of the number PHI. Like the more familiar PI it is a decimal that has yet to be proven to ever repeat itself, and it demonstrates its presence both widely and in fascinating manners.
