Overview

Selects the greatest optical illusions from across the world, from the centuries-old to the present day! An amazing, fun, baffling and incredible collection of optical oddities and visual wonders!

This revised second edition includes even more mind-bending illusions!

Crisp, clear images are complemented with the history behind each design and an explanation of why it works.

[From the introduction:] "Enclosed, dear reader, you will find a collection of the world's greatest optical illusions, designed to trick the eye and fool the mind. It's a veritable fun house of visual curiosities and mind-boggling, logic-bending puzzles; things transform before your eyes, impossible objects become a reality, up is often down, and nothing's quite as it seems!

Some of the illusions contained within have been around for centuries (perhaps confounding your great, great grandparents!) while still others are modern anomalies, sure to puzzle you for the first time. Age aside, all the optical illusions contained within this book will surprise and delight people of all walks of life.

With that in mind, be sure to keep your mind as open as your eyes and enjoy The World's Greatest Optical Illusions!"

    Silly and To the Point - just plain, simple fun!

    This is the only book on optical illusions I can find available on the Nook (as of now), but it's a pretty good compilation of some of the more popular, traditional illusions out there. Many I'd seen before, (which made me appreciate the condensed little histories and "popular science" explanations in each chapter), but others were completely new to me, which of course was cool. Pretty much exactly what I was expecting based on the description. Recommended, but don't take my word for it; preview the sample first to see what you're getting with this.

    sad

    I purchased this book for my children as it was in the kids section. This reads like a short (22-pgs) story on a few un-impressive (graphically speaking ) illusions .
