Now this is how a textbook should be written. The most entertaining, exciting, and educational textbook I've ever had to read. It tells a story while imparting knowledge. It gets you excited about all aspects of the subject. It doesn't repeat itself over and over. While there are some paragraph long sentences, comma use is always appropriate. You might have to re-read a chapter or two, but only because they were so interesting you blew through them in one second.

A later version of my Art History textbook. Thank goodness I don't have to read this one! (I refer to the pictures) While comprehensive in Gardners view of Art history there were no women... what?

Like any interpretation of ART, I think that only the photos tell a kind of truth.

OK I haven't read many art history books, but I like reading this. Maybe it is the topic which makes it so enjoyable for me, but I think it is the writing as well. I have read some terribly written history books. This book I enjoy.
