I definitely would not describe this book as "jargon-free" - even for a fairly astute student such as myself, a few paragraphs in the book really almost cross the line into jargon for jargon's sake. In spite of this, I really loved this book. Gave me a great introduction to a very complicated idea.

Easy to read, touching on a collection of Artists who are relevant within it's parameters, without going into much depth.
