Is this book for you? Yes, if you are an artist or have an interest in European cultural history.
Ross King certainly made an entire era come alive for me. It was fascinating to learn about the emotions and politics behind so many great paintings. Above all else, the author showed me how culture shapes our understanding of beauty and artistic achievement.
Additionally, the reader of this book gave an animated and engaging performance.
If you're looking for a way to understand the basis of Republican "Conservatism", get this book. Dr. Lakoff presents an especially useful way to think about the right-wing agenda, and how that contrasts with progressive aspirations.
I also thought the narrator did a fine job of conveying the author's meaning.
The whole listening experience was a treat.
