'The scope of sculpture today has been addressed head-on by a seasoned authority. No matter what you know about the subject already, this is exciting stuff.' Artists and Illustrators, November 2007 'There are surprisingly few general books on modern sculpture, so this one fills a big gap, and it fills it well. - The great success of Collins's books is its organizational structure, which is creatively thematic. - ably guiding the general reader through the tangled world of modern sculpture. - coherent and intelligent ... Sculpture Today is a worthy successor to the great general tomes published by Phaidon in the past.' Patrick Elliott, Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, The Burlington Magazine, September 2008
