    I personally am not able to review this book If you want a full understanding of why, do go here explains the great knitting crochet divide It is quite funny.It will simply never bother me that I can t knit hyperbolas I m sorry if this offends any crocheters On second thoughts, no I m not.Still, this book has interest for a few reasons One is that it won this year s Oddest Booktitle of the Year award ahead of Afterthoughts of a Worm Hunter by David Crompton Governing Lethal Behavior in Autonomous Robots, by Ronald C Arkin The Changing World of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, by Ellen Scherl and Marla Dubinsky Third place Collectible Spoons of the Third Reich, by James A Yannes, receiving 11% of the vote Second place What Kind of Bean is this Chihuahua by Tara Jansen Meyer, 30% of the vote.First place Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes, by Dr Daina Taimina, 42% of the vote.Another is the unlikeliness of seeing a book of crochet patterns being brought out by a science and technology publisher and reviewed by science and maths journals.You can see a few pictures from the book here a knitter, I can t say anything positive about this book, but in the interests of fairness, I will quote the eminent mathematician William Thurston, who said of it These models have a fascination far beyond their visual appearance As illustrated in the book, there is actually negative curvature and hyperbolic geometry all around us, but people generally see it without seein...

    I want to crochet a hyperbolic plane So, I ordered this book in the hopes it would help in that quest, as well as give some background and an increased understanding of the relevant mathematics Mission sort of accomplished Yes, there are instructions for crocheting your own example, and yes there s a fair amount of history, but still this book was not quite what I was expecting The instructions are not written for the basic knowlege crocheter and are not set out as clearly as I am used to seeing in project books Turns out, this is not a project book a ramble of thoughts by the author, a mathematician who came into fiber arts fame through the back door, in a way It shows I think this book would have benef...

    Sadly, no patternsbut I got to see one of her hyperbolic planes at the Exploratorium, and it was very cool Finally, a craft I can get behind.This book gave me so many ideas for classhyperbolic plane hats for every student and a little kn...

    Another book of maths and crochet This one is beautifully illustrated, but information about how to create the shapes is not provided.

    I would have rated it higher if she gave specific pattern instructions to make some of the crazy awesome corals and hyperbolic planes in the book

    I could have done with less history and information about crocheting hyperbolic planes Why are they always single crochet Why not slip stitch or double crochet If you make continuous increases using a different stitch, what would that be How would it be different I would have liked a beginner friendly ...

    A great dip into source for the non euclidiens amongst us, who insist in working with wool If you can get your hands on the hardback, its binding is far robust.

    My husband bought this book for me at the MOMath in NYC, I ve dipped into it all year at my bedside table.There are plenty of photos, but since they are strange and rare, they are not always sharp and clear The crochet sections themselves would have benefited from a glance from Lindsay Stevens or the Stitchstud, both wonderful tec...

    It was smaller than I was expecting think a large hardcover picture book Except for math geeks And probably not for very little kids Maybe a sixth grader or precocious fourth grader , rereading over the years and getting and understanding...

    This book is really cool, but I would not recommend it unless you have some sort of an interest in math She delves a lot into mathematical history there s actually a lot of that than there is crochet But it s ...
