I like this book, and in one sense there is no need to give it a three star rating. The book has been very well laid out, and systematically guides through the reader through the various aspects of seeing, and how we form images in our brain and the "confusion" between the three and two dimensional world, in how we draw out three dimensional images on the two dimensional space. There is enough here to entertain and educate the reader.

The only reason I give this a three star reading, and not a four star rating, is that I, personally, would have been happier with a more engaging style in writing.… (mais)

I discovered Donald Hoffman from reading edge.org where I was entranced by his answers to the annual questions. I've become a big fan of his philosophy of 'conscious realism' - that our world (what we refer to as reality, the philosopher's world of tables and chairs) is a multi-modal, species specific user interface to something deeper. This book goes some way towards explaining how this is so.
