The Man of Numbers: Fibonacci’s Arithmetic Revolution

Fibonacci is best known for a number series he promulgated, but did you know that this number series he’s most famous for was nothing more than a footnote is a text book he wrote?  Fibonacci’s greatest contribution to mathematical understanding wasn’t what he knew, but the fact that he packaged what he knew so it could help a large variety of people whose lives involved numbers.

This book explores how this drop in the ocean of human knowledge caused ripples that became an effective intellectual tsunami that permeated Europe and still has affects today. 

This book is ideal for anyone who’s ever asked the questions about a ten based number system’s origins and popularity.  When did we decided to use a ten based number system?  When Fibonacci published his book!

Pick up this delightful tale on Amazon.
