    1. I wasn't sure what rating to give this book, because I cannot understand the geometry so I don't know if it's any good - I never did any math in school because of my dsylexia - however, I've given it 5 stars for the glorious diagrams and pictures, which illustrate his concepts. I loved the crystal structure compared to a cityscape; and the planes of clouds, and the whorls of leaves and flowers and the spinning of shells and well, just go look at the pictures. They are beautiful.
