Title:  The Archimedes Codex

Authors:  Reviel Netz & William Noel

Publisher:  Da Capo Press

Reviewer: W. H. McDonald, Jr. AAA Founder

Amazing - Math & History & Mystery!

I honestly never felt particularly inclined to read a book on math let alone pick one up after college - however, I do love a good mystery. It took the brilliant work of two authors, each writing alternating chapters, to fully captivate me enough to read this wonderful book "The Archimedes Codex!" I am so glad I did; I would have missed something very special. This is not just a math book or a science book or a history book - it is a book of mysteries and so much more.

Not only is this book a work of great research and details, it also reaches out to grab that part of your higher self that longs for more understanding. The story about how this ancient information is saved and passed on through history and how it is discovered and restored is a most fascinating tale. The scientific and mathematical genius of Archimedes is fully evident. To be honest, as a non-math major in college, there were some parts of this book that I was not fully able to grasp the bigger meanings - but the story is presented in such a way by the authors, that this made no difference. I did understand the enormity of what these finding were.

Entertaining, yet educational and inspiring work! Reading this book actually encourages a part of me to go back to college and take a few higher math classes. This book made math exciting! This story will fully engage the reader. I think a good novelist could turn this true story into a wondrous tale; it has all the elements of a great story!

I fully recommend this FIVE STAR BOOK for all those with a curious mind and a love of real life mysteries.
