    Story

    In this companion volume to The Discoverers, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Daniel J. Boorstin brings to life more than three thousand years of human artistic achievement, examining painting, sculpture, architecture, theology, philosophy, history, poetry, drama, literature, dance, music, and film.

    Elizabeth says: "No one should miss this book..."
    "Good survey"
    Overall

    This is an informative historical survey of those whom Boorstin must consider the greatest creators from multiple disciplines. What I found maddeningly distracting was the narrator's mispronunciation of many of the names. Fair warning for those who are being introduced to these creators and their works for the first time. I wish I had kept a list to include here.

    Twisted Triangle is the first complete narrative thriller about the sensational story of Margo Bennett, a married FBI agent who had a love affair with best-selling author Patricia Cornwell and whose jealous husband, Gene Bennet, a superstar FBI undercover agent, kidnapped and attempted to murder her.

    Overall

    This book is very well read and provides a vivid insight into a family in a downward spiral and the amazing fortitude of a mother, who gives body and soul to save her children. There are many lessons here and it will be, in my opinion, a book that will live with you for a long time.
