This is a very good, readable, accessible account of a complex topic.It is aimed at non-philosophers but makes a good read regardless of one's ability in philosophy. G and S make a good stab at explaining why many people find conceptual art so puzzling and frustrating. They provide many helpful examples and succeed in teasing out the many philosophical aspects of the conceptual art debate clearly. My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that they lapse into a rather patronising school-teacherly tone occasionally.
