Format: Hardcover
I'd heard the rumour that Banksy was not an individual, rather a team, but reading this book's analogy comparing 'him' to the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers made me laugh out loud, e.g. "Is Banksy a Megazord?"

Note that this book goes a bit beyond a photography collection. It challenges you to assess your relationship with the politics behind Banksy's work. But hey, if all you're interested in is pretty pictures of street art, it's still a good collection.

A great book, packed with many great photos of Banksy's work. Most importantly the text... is not dull in any way, it's really entertaining as well as informative which keeps you hooked as you flick through.

I've got a few different titles about street art in general and Banksy in particular, and 'Banksy: You are an acceptable level of threat...' is easily one of the best. The curation of the images is flawless, including many of pieces I've not seen elsewhere, but it's really the text that makes it special: funny AND thought-provoking.

Format: Hardcover
Extremely well written, funny and witty. Unlike most art books, the text is as good as the pictures and you will want to read it in one sitting. The book is as dismissive of the art world as Banksy. It will have you in stitches and, if you like Banksy but are not planning to buy more than one book about him/her/them, this is an excellent compilation.
