How could I rate this book 5*'s and at the same time title my Review "I got gypped on this one!!!"
I bought this book in good faith thinking I was getting another good book on Optical Illusions.I already own "New Optical Illusions" by these authors ,published in 2005;and really enjoyed it as can be seen by my Review posted June 28,2008,and which I rated it 5*.
When I found this new book,published in 2008,I was very pleased and bought it,fully expecting to enjoy it just as much as the other one.
However; my anticipated enjoyment quickly turned to disappointment and a feeling of betrayal came over me to find that ,to put it bluntly,"I'd been conned!".
This book is exactly the same as "New Optical Illusions" ,except that it has a different publishing date,,a new cover design and illustration, and a very misleading new title "What Are You Looking At?".Checking Amazon,I see that the book I had reviewed does not show the cover mine has and there is another listed ,but with a different cover.So this is at least 3 different cover designs that exist for this book.
All I can say at this point is if you are buying a book of Optical Illusions by these authors and the publishers Carlton Books,be very careful.
Quoting from the covers of my two copies;one "deceptive images & brain-fooling illustrations" and "eye tricks" sure has a connotation different from the subject of Optical Illusions.
YOU'VE BEEN WARNED--BUYER BEWARE!!!
