2.0 out of 5 stars Good seller, poor book
Good seller, fast delivery. Book condition true as described by seller.
But content of book is very basic and poor. Pay more and get a better book on the visual system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview of visual perception, 31 Jan 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: An Introduction to the Visual System (Paperback)
This book, although short is a necessity for those embarking on any course of study which delves into the workings of the visual system. As an undergraduate Psychology student I found the book invaluable in completing my course in Perception. Its readability coupled with its wide content and detailed references illustrate comprehensively what can be quite a difficult topic. I believe that anybody picking up this book for a general scientific read will find it hard not to be fascinated by how humans build a percept of their everyday world. The most used textbook so far in my studies!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introduction to Vision, 11 Jun 2012
Tovée's book is an excellent and understandable introduction to vision; clear, concise and extremely useful as a starting point. However, it must be treated as what it is - an introduction. Criticising it on the basis that it does not go into much depth misses the entire point of such a book. That said, if readers do want to pursue references these are provided in text. This book is extremely easy to work with in the sense of making notes and providing the groundwork for independent study, therefore. If you're new to vision, consider it a good starting point. If you're somewhat familiar, consider it for reference and filling in any gaps in your knowledge.
