The book does not seem to be comprehensive or accurate. I am not sure what objective the author had in writing this.

Format: Hardcover
This is my kind of book, but fortunately Amazon has the preview feature and I was able to look inside. When explaining refraction, it shows a stick dipped in water that bends the wrong way. And the description of soldiers marching into a ploughed field also bent the wrong way. How can you write a book about microscopes if you don't know how a simple lens or prism works? Two stars because I didn't see the whole book and it might have some redeeming qualities which aren't apparent at first glance.
