'Think Pascal's Pensees crossed with a celebrity interview in Heat. ... if you want to hear what the man whose taste has shaped contemporary visual culture has to say, this volume provides a pretty good pocket-sized introduction. ... The answers feel fresh and frank. [Saatchi] is refreshingly plain-spoken. ... For the price of a cocktail, the reader is offered an entertaining conversation with a complex but personable character.' The Times 'for such a household name, Saatchi has a remarkably low profile ... of all his achievements, this is his most extraordinary: to have become a celebrity, but totally on his own terms and with his privacy sacrosanct. This is what's special about the book. ... this book tells you about how to live.' The Mail on Sunday 'frank and often hilarious' Sloane Square magazine 'often quite robust answers ... informative, entertaining and quite spikily readable' The Independent

About the Author
In 1970 Charles Saatchi founded the Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising Agency, which grew to become the largest agency in the world. At the same time, Saatchi began collecting art and later opened his first gallery, a 30,000 square-foot former paint factory in London. His exhibitions have always focused on contemporary artists and Saatchi’s Sensation exhibition on Young British Artists at the Royal Academy of Art, London, and at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York, sparked an explosion of controversy. The new Saatchi Gallery in London’s King’s Road is one of the largest showcases of contemporary art in the world and hosted five of the six most-visited exhibitions in London.
