I love the Mini Masters series, though this wasn't one of the best. There were only seven paintings included in the book, so there wasn't as much of a cohesive story as some of the other books. I felt like the end came suddenly and would have liked some more. To be fair, Seurat died in his 30s and so the authors would have had a lot less artwork to choose from. If you are collecting this series, this is a must. But if you are a first time purchaser, I would recommend the authors' books on Cassatt, Monet or Matisse.
