From the Introduction
Is art always happy? No, of course not. No more than it's always pretty, comfortable, or easy.
But can engaging with art-- with art's potent brew of visual pleasure, intellectual rigor, myriad meanings, and unexpected worldview-- make you a happier human being with a profoundly enriched life?
Resoundingly, the answer is: Yes.
In this book, you'll learn:
- How to find art you like.
- How to walk into a museum and enjoy the art there.
- How to look at art without leaving your house.
...and much more!

Top Customer Reviews
I'd recommend this book for anyone who wants to spend less time fretting about the details of the art world—like what work is cool or important, how to buy the right art, how to walk into a fancy gallery even if you feel like you don't belong, and so on—and more time simply being moved by art.
A quick, easy, and delightful read, full of great advice.
Pro Tip: Anything published by Chronicle is worth getting in print form because of the amazing design work, and this bright and shiny book is no exception.
