Review quote

"Those who work in the area of binocular vision should consider adding this two-volume set to their personal libraries, even if they own the 1995 book." --Scott Stevenson in Optometry and Visual Science..".the definitive reference and summary of this field for a long time to come. This new volume ranges far beyond what its title promises... belongs not only on the shelf of experts in stereoscopic vision, but also on that of every vision researcher." --The Quarterly Review of Biology"The authors are adept wordsmiths with an encyclopaedic knowledge, and there is little on which they do not have a deeply considered view. This is a hugely impressive book and the copious illustrations, many specially prepared, are unusually handsome, nicely complementing the text." --F.A. Miles in Trends in Neuroscience"An invaluable book certain to be a classic... The book works well because the authors executed it so efficiently. The provide comprehensive, even encyclopaedic coverage, a balanced nonpolemic treatment coupled with lucid coherent exposition... The text is richly supported by hundreds of figure and at least 2,800 references... One could build a seminar around this book, especially so because the writing is unusually free of jargon." --Contemporary Psychology"This marvelous book is surely one of the most important perceptual works in recent years. It is difficult to think of any other area of perception which has ever received a treatment so comprehensive, coherent, and accurate that is at the same time highly stimulating... The reader will find much food for thought... I strongly recommend it to any vision researcher.' --Perceptionshow more
