Think Like an Artist Reviews


Will Gompertz is the best teacher you never had * Guardian *
The Shock of the New redone a la Bill Bryson . . . richly detailed and highly entertaining * Daily Telegraph on What Are You Looking At? *
Hugely accessible . . . writes about difficult things without letting on that they are difficult * Independent on Sunday on What Are You Looking At? *
A romp through art history and the creative mind ... full of entertaining anecdote * Guardian *
Gompertz doesn't have it in him to be boring. He clearly loves art too much and his book ... succeeds as a short love letter to art. The pictures are wonderful * The Times *
