5.0 out of 5 stars I will never watch conjurors in the same way again, 11 Feb. 2011
By 
This review is from: Sleights of Mind: What the neuroscience of magic reveals about our brains (Paperback)
I have always loved those shows which tell you how tricks are done, now I have found out how my brain helps magicians to fool me. Like Oliver Sacks or VS Ramachandran the authors are make neuroscience seem simple, and yet fascinating. Lots of tricks are revealed - but they give you fair warning in case you don't want to be disillusioned. Actually I was perhaps even more impressed by magicians after I read the book, because they have to work so hard to learn to make it all seem so easy.

Just out of curiosity, is this book paperback or hardback? I know it's listed as paperback on Amazon, but I notice that most other online book shops list it as hardback (with the exact same ISBN as the paperback listed on Amazon).
