To Counter the 1 Star Review Below 9 Jun. 2010
By C. T. Northrup - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is definitely a 5 STAR book...Eliasson's work is thought provoking, beautiful and sublime. The books execution and design reflects this. I get so annoyed at people who leave 1 star BOOK reviews (see below) because they received a crappy used book or service. This space is for BOOK reviews, NOT seller reviews...leave your seller reviews at the appropriate place.

Possibly the BEST Book I've Ever Read! 27 May 2009
By ABC - Published on
Format: Hardcover
All that I can say is... buy this book! If you are interested in art, philosophy (specifically phenomenology), or the human experience, (and even if you are not) this book is for you! Insightful essays provide an eye-opening look at the work of one of the greatest living artists. It will change your perception of how the view the world and give you a newfound appreciation for everyday life. Amazon has a great price on this book (the cheapest I've ever found). The book feature fantastic photography and is visually stunning. A breathtaking work that simply put, is a must have.

Difficult task 11 Jun. 2010
By Paulo Waisberg - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I feel it hard to publish a book about an artist that creates environments, most of the time using light and reflection. This book is a serious effort...It is what you have if you want to understand and know a bit more about Eliasson. I think his art is worth it.
