“Beautiful geometric constructions abound, making browsing the book a pleasure. Valuable for all mathematics collections…highly recommended.”
Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries

“Requiring no more than an elementary knowledge of geometry and algebra, The Glorious Golden Ratio will give all readers a new appreciation of the indispensable qualities and the inherent beauty of mathematics.”
Mathematical Review

“The reader of mathematical literature will feel at home in Posamentier’s book. The work is sophisticated and serious, leaving the reader to reflect on the properties and nature of the iconic golden ratio.”
Sacramento/ San Francisco Book Review

“From relationships between the Golden Ratio and other famous number sets to appearances in nature, literature and technology, this provides a wide-ranging discussion that requires only a basic knowledge of geometry and algebra to prove inviting. College-level collections will welcome this discussion!”
