Amazing. Anyone who wants to be apart of an intelligent conversation regarding art education (higher education) and ways to improve it should read this book. Anyone in an MFA program, or anyone who cares about the ways artists develop before being part of the art market should read this. Just read it.
As with lots of books about pedagogy written from the perspective of famous artists, this essay mistakes remarks on teaching for actual pedagogy. A book that reminds you how much more you'd rather watch Tim Gunn's praxis than read a steaming pile of banter, gossip and anecdote masquerading as theory.

I attended the panel discussions at The Cooper Union regarding the future of the art academy and came away filled with questions, even as to the mixed-use nature of my artistic identity or role, as it is currently iterated. I can only think that provocation on this level is a good thing.
If you are looking for a useful comparison of how art is being taught at the secondary level, if you are an art educator for instance, this is NOT the book for you. Mostly criticism and conceptual concerns about 'education'.
