If you like to look at optical illusions that play total tricks on the brain and deceive the eye - This book contains 500 of them to keep you (and your brain) busy for an hour, or two.

Some of the illusions in this book are good. Some are not.

Some good. Some not. This book is just "OK".

avoid this one.
It repeats the same sort of puzzles over and over and the drawing quality it poor with thick lines, so most optical effects are limited. Some pictures seemed like they were made with a fat marker.
Also, the book has small dimensions, softcover and thick, so all the pages are bent and cannot be flattened, thus ruining most of the visual effects.
IMO: optical illusion books should be well printed and color on wide flat pages in a thin book.

If you thought that you could believe your own eyes - Just wait till you get an eyeful of 500 (Yes! 500!) optical illusions - And, then, look again - 'Cause maybe (just maybe) what you are seeing is not exactly what it appears to be.

In this often-amusing book, I guarantee, you'll literally go cross-eyed at the vast and varied selection of some of the world's most eye-tricking, mind-boggling puzzles, tricks, and visual oddities ever assembled together in one complete volume.

While some of these puzzles are quite new, others are hundreds of years old. And with a little time and patience you'll soon be able to train your eyes and your brain to see and think differently when viewing them. (*Be sure to watch video*)

*P.S.* - If you do get stumped - Hey, don't fret. The answers are all conveniently there for you in the back of the book.
