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.

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.
