Format: Paperback
This is worth reading - Graw sees through the rubbishy glamour of the post boom art market, where artists become luxury brands - and offers an art times painfully shrewd analysis but also makes recommendations that might be followed by aspiring artists.

art is business,business is art 14 May 2011
By Iain Morse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Despite some unfortunate turns into opaque art-academic vocabulary(well,she is German) this is a detailed and powerfull critique of the modern art world which deserves to be taken very seriously. For someone so embedded in this world, Graw takes no prisoners and does no favours.....she is unlikely to be on Damien Hirst's Christmas card list anytime soon!Her critique of his diamond skull-weak art given weight by it's huge cost of manufacture-is true of much of his work!
I got my copy for free but it's worth buying!!!!!!

Mandatory Reading for anyone engaged with contemporary art 3 Aug 2013
By Ivar Zeile - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is easily the most important book on the market right now for anyone that is immersed in the field of contemporary art, whether as a dealer, artist or collector. Isabelle Graw delivers a fascinatingly rich and highly astute take on current and driving forces of art, covering a broad range of territory. I don't know how she managed to pull together something so succinct, compelling and readable (yes, it may have a slight academic tone to it but it's really very, very well constructed), it really stands as a singular work that defines what the business of has evolved into today. I don't know how much traction she's managed to attain with the book so far, I imagine it's not been super visible, but it really stands above almost all of the recent literature that has come out in the last decade that attempts to explain various aspect within the realm of contemporary art. I couldn't put it down.
