Good, but not great Aug. 27 2011
By Regina - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is intriguing on many counts, but the author has a number of views on art historical issues which he presents as facts, but are opinion. The writing is dry and lacks the kind of excitement that this topic really needs. I found myself disagreeing with the author so often that it created a distraction. On the other hand, the topic is crucial to the history of art and science, and definitely worth reading for the science aspects especially. Caution on the art history.

Torn barcode Jan. 14 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I received the book and the back barcode was torn off due to this action I will be unable to possibly sell back my book at my school's bookstore. Other than that, it was shipped on time.
