One Sun, two parents, three meals a day, four seasons, five fingers...every child soon discovers that lots of things in life inherently have an number attached to them.
Just as five individual fingers become something more important and powerful when combined in a hand, these numbers are often much more than the simple addition of their parts; they are connected intrinsically to the object, expressing a particular quality.
In this readable little book, Wolfgang Held explores the fascinating qualities of numbers one to thirty-one. The Pythagorean School in ancient Greece had a saying: all is number. The author reveals the hidden numerical order of our world and our remarkable harmonic relationship with our surroundings."
