Bounght this initially as a present for an 8 year old.
However, when it arrived I had a look through it and decided to keep as a stocking filler for one of my sons (both in their 20's).
Think it's the kind of thing that will go down well over Christmas and get passed around the family.
Layout of the book in general is not for children and there are probably other options that are more suitable. However, I am pleased to get my Christmas shopping off to am unexpected early start!

I bought two copies for my great nephews, all aged below 10. They, and their parents, have really enjoyed the books, in fact it looked likely they might squabble over who looked first, the parents or the children!Seems the type they will come back to , access, understand and talk about for a long time to come.The illusions are mixed, some that you find in many places, but enough to spark interest as well.

The delight in opening this book or spending any time with it is no illusion. The reflection that follows on whether seeing is believing prolongs the true sensation.

Bought this for my youngest son as a Christmas present, obviously he has not got it yet so may have to update my review later. As for me, I had a quick flick through which turned into a good long peruse and then rushing to hide it as my son came home!! I like this, there are some obvious illusions that everone has seen, the Escher terrace and the eskimo/indian illusion, but still even a flick through will prompt a pause while you try to work out each picture. Some are obvious ofcourse, but that does not make them any the less intreguing, buy and prepare to flip the pages again and again.

Well worth the money. Very entertaining. My 10 year old son was delighted with this book and has been showing it to his friends.

The best illusion is on the front cover. Rather underwhelmed by this book & wish I hadn't wasted my money buying it..

I bought this for my daughter as she has become very interested in illusions. She absolutely loves this book and looks through it often.
