For the most part, I adored this biography. I've always been a fan of de Kooning, and this book really captures not only important elements of his life, but attempts to embody the rise and plateau of Abstract Expressionism. Needless to say, it does a good job.
Another good thing about this book is that you don't need to be an art historian to appreciate the detail and the recounting of de Kooning's life--both in and out of the art world.
