    While the Civil War raged in America, another very different revolution was beginning to take shape across the Atlantic, in the studios of Paris. The artists who would make Impressionism the most popular art form in history were showing their first paintings amid scorn and derision from the French artistic establishment. Indeed, no artistic movement has ever been, at its inception, quite so controversial.

    Overall

    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.

    Highly recommended.

    This New York Times best seller is the authoritative guide to comprehending what happened in the 2004 elections and understanding how progressive thinkers can wrest control of America's political dialogue away from the conservatives who have it now.

    "What a fabulous book!"
    Overall

    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.
