Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A most unusual guide to the solar system, A Little Book of Coincidence suggests that there may be fundamental relationships between space, time, and life that have not yet been fully understood. From the observations of Ptolemy and Kepler to the Harmony of the Spheres and the hidden structure of the solar system, John Martineau reveals the exquisite orbital patterns of the planets and the mathematical relationships that govern them. A table shows the relative measurements of each planet in eighteen categories, and three pages show the beautiful dance patterns of thirty six pairs of planets and moons.

Review:

"The fascinating, informative Wooden Books series blends ancient wisdom and modern knowledge. The books are thin, impeccably designed, and will stimulate more thinking and subsequent 'Eureka' moments than a dozen novels laced with narrative innovations and postmodern stylings." Atlanta Journal-Constitution
