This whole series 'What are you looking at?' is a masterpiece. Gompertz enjoys full mastery of the subject but what is most appealing is the succinct, original and clear way he tackles the subject. It is a pleasure listening to his explanations which he expounds most lucidly. Worth every cent. I have read hundreds of books on art and can recognize excellent material quickly.This is how art should be explained.
Listening to Gompertz reading, adds to the flavour and glint of his book. He gives the written word a stronger impact.
Somerset Maugham excels in his short stories and they truly come to life thanks to the excellent narration of Charlton Griffin. The whole series is a must to listen to. What a treat!
