Only the best books can open your eyes. I read this because I saw it on the Modern Library's 100 Best Nonfiction Books of the Century List. I know all such lists are arbitrary and controversial, but this book deserves to be on it. It explores the origins of artistic style, using a combination of art history and research in visual perception. The ideas of this book will stay with you after you read it, and will effect how you think about any kind of art or thought.
