From the Publisher"Quite the special topic, the Fibonacci numbers nevertheless enjoy enormous popularity, perhaps due to their connection with the golden mean. Vorobiev's book, now translated, presents a solid overview, perfectly pitched to undergraduates. . . . Recommended; upper-division undergraduates and up."
"This is a wonderful book with a huge amount of information on Fibonacci numbers. First published in the 1950s for high school students enrolled in a mathematical circle at the Leningrad State University, the book only assumes knowledge of high school mathematics, but the reader will need the sophistication of a good upper-level mathematics major. The warmth and enthusiasm of the late author comes through Mircea Martin's English translation.... This book would be useful to any mathematician with a desire to know more about the Fibonacci numbers. A student could use it for a reading project on the Fibonacci numbers.... Overall, I enjoyed the book and highly recommend it."
