Condensed Art well done
I have covered only some of the material in this book and I am slowly going through the rest. It is like chewing a good piece of pie or your favorite meal well cooked... This book has a very contemporary look & feel and yet historical data is present to take the reader back to appreciate all flavors of ART. I wish it were more lengthy.
