You see I can't even put what I really think because he has powerful lawyers, if you want to live in the world of the crass and uncaring this book is for you. I hope it was written as a joke - but I doubt it.
I found it became increasingly difficult to pursue after about one third of the way through, and was not sure if I was going to finish it or bin it. Ultimately I binned it. It so lacks any joie de vivre and probably reflects Saatchi's personality and outlook, dull and heavy going.
Lighten up man, you're only here once and none of us is that big a deal in the scheme of things.
Poor Nigella - what a terrible choice, unless she's less fun than she seems.
A doctor's waiting room book when you've a bit of time to kill and nothing better to do.
Saatchi may not be a likeable man, but he is certainly an interesting one. Although some of his responses seem throwaway, many of them are fascinating and show a rare insight - in particular, his thoughts on negative reviews, being nice to people, and impatience. There are few insights into the worlds of advertising or art dealing, although it does include the unexpected and delightful fact that the Mona Lisa has no eyebrows because it was the fashion in Renaissance Florence to shave them off.
Grumpier than a self-help book and more beautifully presented than an interview, this book is fine to flip through during idle moments.
