I've just finished reading Ms. Huffington's book 'Picasso: Creator and Destroyer.' It's clear to see Ms. Hiffington simply has her own agenda which has little to do with Picasso, the facts of his life or the art he left behind. If anyone is interested in a true biography of the artist and the revolutionary genius behind his incredibly enduring art, you won't find it within these pages. Ms. Huffington displays little understanding of his actual works or the process it took to make them. She has, infact, not included a single analysis of any of his pieces and little of their effects on world. Instead, she's chosen to write a biography which reads like a National Enquirer expose and shown little sympathy for the man or his legend. I came away from the book with the overwhelming feeling that Ms. Huffington is jealous of her illustrious subject and felt a need to nock him off his pedestal. Indeed, this is a pathetic trait in any author. I doubt that I would ever be able to take any of her other works seriously. This book can be best described as "Hogwash." My one star rating is based solely on the fact that this forum does not allow for zero stars.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is my first biography of Picasso to learn about him. What a mistake. The author is determined to portray Picasso as a total freak, a manipulator of people, selfish, and evil. So every detail is researched and maipulated to reveal his hypocritical life. The author is an expert in telepathic communication and so can easily read everyones thoughts, their real selves. It must have been a pleasure to write something like this, I mean, to try to totally denigrate another person, a person that is admired internationally, but reading it is depressing and leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Certainly not the first bio one would want to read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
