Thought provoking and enjoyable read...,
I bought the book entitled 'It's not how good you are, it's how good you want to be' many years ago from Phaidon. I finally purchased this book and read it today.
The book contains many insights into a field (The Art World) which Saatchi is obviously an expert in and has much wisdom regarding the Art establishment in an easy to digest, no nonsense fashion.
Saatchi has a unique perspective of life and portrays this in the book without coming across as forceful. The book itself is an artwork, as utilizing an interview format, he actually manages to create an extremely entertaining autobiography which has hints of a biography as the questioners at times act as though they know the man, then he puts them (and us) straight.
Overall, this is an excellent read, highly advised and well worth the price.
