Odd Book Title

This small news article caught my eye
--"A book charting the frontier between handicrafts and geometry won Britain's quirkiest literary award, the Diagram Prize for year's oddest book title went to Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes written by Daina Taimina. This title beat out runners-up What Kind of Bean is this Chihuahua? and Collectible Spoons of the Third Reich."
Needless to say, the fingers flew across the keyboard to find this book and read more about it and yes, order it from Amazon
Front cover--great photo with that fascinating book title:

Back cover along with info about the author.
And inside we dive!
Adventure awaits the brain for more learning about this technique and math--that eighth grade teacher was right--you will use geometry in everyday life!
