It is an understatement to say that the title of Palmer's book, Vision Science, is ambitious. What is remarkable, is that he has succeeded in writing a book which lives up to it. As a graduate student in vision science, I am aware of how easy it is to forget that there are things going on outside of one's own area of research. I wanted a book which would help provide me with the bigger picture, but which went beyond the subject matter of typical textbooks. There is, necessarily, a depth/breadth trade off in any book and Vision Science sits comfortably between text book and professional manual. What Palmer provides is a structured and coherent overview of a multidisciplinary field, within a contemporary information processing framework. Palmer is masterly in his treatment of the material and his clarity and choice of it reflects not only a deep understanding and encyclopaedic knowledge of his subject, but also the hallmark of any good teacher: making difficult ideas seem accessible and interesting. I would strongly recommend this book to any student of vision science.
