Description de l'ouvrage

1 janvier 2011
I read it and greatly enjoyed it. I like the way the author compares the eye and camera. This is done much more successfully than that by many previous authors. It is the sort of book which many of our first year optometry students might benefit from - Dr John Saunders, Visiting Lecturer, Optometry and Visual Science, City University, London. We think we see the world in splendid detail, in glorious color, in three dimensions and full motion. But in reality, we only see detail over a tiny area, we are legally blind 25 degrees off center, and we are completely blind for up to half the time our eyes are open! Using striking visual illusions, we demonstrate the eye’s huge limitations compared with a modern digital camera - and then show how Nature splendidly overcomes these limitations to give us the ultimate illusion of near-perfect sight, that is well matched to our survival in the real, living world.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An essential read! 19 mai 2013

I liked this book. It concisely explains how the eye works in accessible language with rigour and accuracy and yet is also a great read! For any student, lay person or practicing professional with an interest in the visual arts, graphic design, medical or physical sciences this is an excellent foundation and lead in to the science of how the eyes actually work and will be of value to many. I can see this becoming a standard text.

The author of this informative and enjoyable book has a genius for simple, clear explanations. The book deals with how and what we do and don't really see. He starts with basics, much of which would be suitable reading for younger readers, showing unexpected differences between what our eyes and what our cameras see. And he follows this with precise explanations of how they work.
The many diagrams and illustrations are uncomplicated; they succeed in clearly making the points.
Fascinating optical illusions are also liberally sprinkled throughout the book, each demonstrating a particular issue. Resolving a few of these optical illusions still eludes this reader -- the brain, rather than the eye, needs to be mistrusted here.
Mr. White deals with a number of issues including eye movement, focusing, depth perception, color perception, night vision -- all with illustrations and clarity of explanation.
Through it all one senses and thus shares his passion for the subject. I'm sending a copy to my teenage daughter.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 well done 1 mars 2011
Par Jack - Publié sur Amazon.com
Here's a crash course in optics, the complicated design of the eye and the limits of human vision all presented in brief, easily digested chapters for young and old readers. The often surprising illustrations demonstrate the way our eyes can play tricks on us, while the text explains how these optical illusions work in a clear and readable style.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 From a magician's point of view... 28 février 2011
Par Christophe J. Fouquet - Publié sur Amazon.com
"Never trust your eyes" exposes how our vision system works. The book has many illustrations and many optical illusions. What makes this book unique and interesting is that it explains WHY the illusions work and what happens in the eye and brain.
The explanations are not too technical yet precise enough to give a clear idea of the physics at play. The parallel between the eye and a camera is really good to put things in perspective (pun intended).
This book is of particular interest to me as a magician. Some of the weapons we have as magicians are the limitations of human brain and our flawed 5 senses. We use a variety of techniques that include taking advantage of the eyes' limitations. The eye's attraction to movement is a big asset in directing attention.
We often use a big motion (eye is attracted) to cover a small movement. The book illustrates this fully.
The eye's perception of depth is also used in magic, not only in big illusions but also in card magic.
Finally, the "Kanizsa triangle illusion" (page 103) principle is used in a card trick I always carry in my wallet. Not surprisingly, it is called "close up illusion".
You do not have to be a magician to enjoy this book. It will make you aware of your own limitations. So the next time you are tempted to say "I swear I saw ..." you want to think twice before completing your sentence.
