I picked this up while I was reading "Where the Heart Beats" about the life of John Cage because Cage was hugely influenced by Duchamp. I studied Dada and Surrealism in college and knew many of Duchamp's famous works but couldn't get my head around why he was so celebrated. This book fixed all that. The dictionary format ended up being a great way to learn about Duchamp and get inside his way of thinking. A fantastic read.
