    Highly recommend

    This is a fun book to read. The author has revealed to us that the world of art is not that much different from other businesses or industries when people are involved. The "product" may be more colorful and exotic than the norm; but the interplay with artists,clients and art dealers is where the foibles, tensions, and human weaknesses arise. It is the art that ties all these elements together making for interesting possiblities, since art often evokes emotion with an individual and very personal response.
