    A starting point for research

    I am a fan, both of the Wooden Book format, and of the author, David Wade. The author's clear writing style is a big part of the beauty of this little book. It is a review of the principles of symmetry in everything from molecules to galaxies. Clear, concise and interesting, but it is not enough for the serious scholar. It is an overview, providing a jumping-off point for further study.
