A really interesting book that notes mathematical patterns in the orbit of bodies in our solar system. Quite the interesting little book for anyone who likes patterns like this. I was really fascinated by the number of connections to the Golden Mean in the relation of Venus, Mercury and Earth. ( )

MacBeth Derham recommends this book as, "The solar system is God's Spirograph, and this secular little book demonstrates the mathematical beauty of a created universe without trying; there are no coincedences."

A new look at an old subject, the application of geometry to cosmology and some speculations about what used to be called "the music of the spheres". "Is there a secret structure hidden in the Solar System?" asks the blurb-writer. Anyone who isn't convinced that current science has the answer to everything might well ask the same question after reading this. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802713882, Hardcover)

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.
