This book is ingeniously organized, since each chapter is a visit to distinct piece of the interlocking art world. The most intriguing part for me was the seminar at Cal Arts, where you really learn how artists go about thinking about the work they are creating. Also, the visit to the Venice Biennial was enlightening, and the visit to the studio of Takashi Murakami showed how art becomes enterprise. The work chronicles the interdependence of creativity and commerce from high stakes to high art. Though I would have very different reactions than the narrator to the places she visits, her journey is definitely enlightening. Susan's review
