This book is garbage on steroids.
I'll give you three examples and you tell me if these would be the things you'd consider to be, as the book says on its cover "Everything you always wanted to know about the arts but were afraid to ask."
Secret 1: (from a museum director) "My museum is a playground."
Secret 2: (from the CEO of a cultural communications company, whatever that means) "The image makes the story."
Secret 3: (from the co-founder of a high-falutin' Art Fair) "And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make. [and, if that wasn't bad enough he adds] You may recognize it as the last line from the last Beatles song."
It goes in this vein. Pompous, pseudo-deep sounding nonsense from self-important blowhards.
The authors and the publisher belong in prison for fraud.
'100 Secrets' is well designed, informative, and a wonderfully entertaining read. Even my partner, who never took to exploring the art world during my 7 years running a gallery, spent time flipping through this handy little book. It's one that we, and our guests have enjoyed revisiting. I particularly enjoy the book's variety of featured celebrity names as well as those lesser-known to a non-expert audience. Bravo!
