While Bruce Gilson analyzes and emphasizes the properties, formulas, and applications of the generalized Fibonacci sequence in The Fibonacci Sequence and Beyond, he also covers other sequences (such as the Lucas sequence and geometric sequences) and addresses the relationships between them. He anticipates that readers will recognize “beautiful” patterns in the mathematical computations presented in his book.

Just the first two paragraphs of the Preface supply biographical information on Fibonacci; the vast majority of the remainder of the book contains examples, explanations, and analyses of sequences and formulas. While they seem comprehensible and well-written, the readers who will gain the most from this book are those who are familiar with (and love) algebra.
