Reviews

As a harvest of fascinating facts delivered with sharp wit and insight, it is hard to fault -- Robert Douglas-Fairhurst * Daily Telegraph *
Intriguing -- John Carey * Sunday Times *
A fascinating compendium... Another author might struggle to manage such an esoteric collection [of stories of invisibility] but Mr Ball's writing is incisive enough to keep the different elements hanging and working together * The Economist *
Ball marshals his material with deftness and charm * Literary Review *
[A] fantastic feast of ideas and information on the subject... In this enthralling book, Philip Ball's elegant and intelligent mastery...is very evident indeed * Evening Standard *
