This is a great book for those interested in art and architecture, as it gives the reader an entirely new perspective on the extremely delicate topic of composition in the applied arts. However, this could also be an interesting reading experience for those not directly linked with the above mentioned fields as it is written in an easy to understand manner, that will hopefully arise their interest in art, architecture, and most importantly in understanding the way we percieve the world arround us and what makes it beautiful or not. If you have ever asked yourself why you are struck with amazement in front of a painting by La Tour, Gaugain or Van Gogh, or if you have ever wondered why buildings such as the Pantheon and those of Le Corbusier have powerfull but different effects on you, than this is the book that will enlighten you. If, however, those questions have never crossed your mind, do not give up on this book so easily, give it a chance and you just might surprise yourself . This is definitely the book you want to guide you through the long road of understanding the works of art and their meaning. I strongly recommend this book to everyone, whether you take it as a textbook, a guide, or as a psychological analysis of creativity you will not be dissapointed.
