I'll keep this simple:
I have never desired to DO art myself before encountering this book. It simplified so many forms of art by boiling down to its fundamental components, clean and concise. Now I love art and feel no intimidation when approaching forms of art new to me. I've even won some local awards for photography and prints I've done using the guidance of this book and this book only. 100% beginner to awards. I don't know what more I could say. LOVE IT!

It's not difficult as long as one has the assistance of a teacher, it's quite necessary, overall I am pleased.

The book is for my college class, so that is what caused me to choose this particular one. I enjoy the many photos and explanations of the art, which go into fairly good detail in an easy to understand format. It is very easy to find topics or artists in the index and the dictionary is full of great definitions that come in handy for tests and class discussions. I like this book enough to keep it in my personal library even after the class is over.

I rented this book for my Art Appreciation class. It was helpful and informative at a fraction of the price. I am not quite finished with my class, but with the help of this book I believe I should receive an A.

I recommend this book if you have a art class at a university and its required. It was cheaper to by it here than rent at my university.

I liked this book worth checking out. It was for an art appreciation class and Zelanski and Fisher make good points.
