Product description

Review

“The book [Byrne] was born to write. I could make a good case for calling this How Art Works or even How Everything Works.”
—Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing

“David Byrne is a brilliantly original, eccentric rock star, and he has written a book to match his protean talents.”
—John Rockwell, The New York Times Book Review

“Fascinating . . . It was wildly ambitious to try and turn this galaxy of theory into a readable work of scholarship, but Byrne has done it, and done it with style.”
—Mark Ellen, The Guardian

About the Author
