An exhaustive gallery of optical illusions printed in colour on quality paper. you don't get an exhaustive explanation on the science behind the illusions, but the book is not intended to cover such a topic; though i have no doubt that al seckel has other books in his series that cover this. there is also a bibliography in the back that suggests further reading. i very much reccomend this book as a suitable addition the collerction of anyone interested in the area of optical illusions.

This book lives on the coffee table in our reception area and many visitors to our office have enjoyed thumbing through it.
People have been known to linger, just fascinated by it.
It's the sort of visual book that can be picked up and put down at any point, at any page, and includes most of the classic illusions, as well as more obscure ones.
It's a great book that you can look at over and over again.
