A captivating read,
This review is from: Ways of Seeing: Based on the BBC Television Series (Paperback)
I went to school in the UK, taking the full range of O and A-levels to go to University.
Looking back, the most memorable book that I read in school was this one.
It lived up to its title and gave me another way of seeing.
So much of school is about preparing people to lead dull 9 to 5 lives in offices, hospitals etc. as if they were working in some 19th century factory.
This book opened the door to creativity and independent thought, something that none of the other textbooks ever did.
