Is seeing believing? This book will make you question that it is. Featuring almost fifty amazing optical illusions it explains how playing around with the context of colours, shapes and tones, and by changing viewpoints, your eyes and brain can be tricked into seeing things that aren’t there, or incorrectly seeing things that are. The explanations are as fascinating as the illusions themselves, and the book finishes with a section of simple but effective visual experiments for readers to try out on friends and family. Clever and entertaining this will provide hours of fun as well as really making you think about the brain and what it’s doing. ~ Andrea Reece
