Eye Benders: The Science of Seeing and Believing

Incredible illusions, plus the weird science behind them. Look past what you see. Would you believe your eyes… if they saw everything upside down? Well, they do. And that’s just the first of the weird and wacky facts in here. Check out heaps of crazy illusions, from madly swirling patterns to colours that look totally different but are actually the same. Your eyes might boggle, but Clive Gifford shows you the truth beyond the trickery. The ultimate book of illusions. Do you see?
