Enriching our perception of the world, this book addresses the misconceptions of polarized light and provides a framework for applications. It covers wave alignment and crystals as well as various phenomena such as scattering and reflection. School Science Review calls this work "a fascinating book giving a wealth of details and examples of polarization [with] wonderful color photographs." Optics & Photonics News goes on to say, "David Pye's slim volume belongs to that rarest category of books that facture an inviting description of physical phenomena ... Pye's deft descriptions and the photogenic opulence of optical phenomena ensure that physics is never short-changed in this volume."
