This review is from: Optical Illusions: The Science of Visual Perception (Illusion Works) (Paperback)
This is one of those books you pick up and cannot put down. There is a huge range of visual tricks here looking into symmetry, shapes, colours, perception and abstract images within images. 279 in total. Some of them are so good (particularly the colour tricks) you simply cannot believe it until you read the accompanying notes in the back of the book to prove it by covering parts of the image! I'm a big fan of these illusions but only wanted one book on them (as the other reviewer has said, they do get repeated from book to book) and this was a great choice. There are some classic old favourites you've seen before but these are kept to a minimum, most of the content I had not seen before.
