KIRKUS REVIEW

The evolution of the eye, human and animal, is traced here in a scholarly observant treatise whose vocabulary and scientific approach classify it for the teen ager seeking challenging reading in this area. The text is discursive, somewhat disorganized, ranging at random from evolution to anatomy, to history and into the future. Speculation and commentary cover major and minor notes in optics -- that the frog retracts his eye muscles to clear his throat and that man's eyes will need protection as he travels in outer space.
