Gary B. Meisner is the creator of www.goldennumber.net, a popular website dedicated to the mathematics, prevalence, and design applications of the golden ratio. In 2004, he led the development of his PhiMatrix Golden Ratio Design and Analysis software, which is used by thousands of artists, architects, designers, and photographers in over seventy countries, as well as in cosmetic medical and stock market analysis applications. After earning accounting and MBA degrees from two top business schools, he spent most of his career in CFO/CIO roles with operating units of five Fortune 1000 public companies. Gary is now a self-employed technology/systems consultant conducting ongoing research and collaboration on the golden ratio, and his work has been featured in Da Vinci The Exhibition at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. Providing an online community in which new findings can be shared and discussed, he helps others to appreciate the incredible beauty and design in the world around us and to applying these same principles of design to their own creative works.
Rafael Araujo is an architect and illustrator from Caracas, Venezuela, who has been hand drawing beautiful illustrations of nature for more than forty years. By applying the Golden Ratio in his geometric formulas, Araujo brings the natural mathematical framework of nature's beautiful designs to life. Araujo’s work has been featured in publications like Wired Magazine, and exhibited at Stanford University and many other prestigious galleries.

This book has been on my wish list for a long time. I purchased the PhiMatrix app that he developed a few years ago and this book complements it perfectly. If you are a lover of art and science, you can get lost and hours can go by as you assess various works of art and organic objects using both the app and the book in concert.
The illustrations are dazzling and his explanations helped me, a self-proclaimed math dummy, to understand the wonder and magic of phi.
I am only on the second chapter and will report more later, but my first impressions are overwhelmingly positive. I highly recommended this book.
