    Excellent review, I will buy this book.

    • I’m glad you liked it Brian. The books is a bit slow in the start and I don’t know if I would have kept going if I weren’t writing about it. But I’m glad I did get through it. I suggest skipping anything you don’t like and just going on to the next. I think I noted my favorite selections in the review. The intro wasn’t as good as the selections either.

    Excited to get this. Just finished Art&Fear and the studio reader seems like a perfect thing to get into at this point.

    • Dan, I have not read Art and Fear yet. Do you recommend it. Have you read any Rancier?

      • dan sinclair says:

        I do recommend Art and Fear. Its an incredibly easy read and almost everything Bayles and Orland discuss resonates with every creative being who are actually serious about art making.

        Have not read Ranciere .I just downloaded some from Aaron Vandyke’s summer reading list
