The most wonderful aspect of this book is that it works on two levels. The comic-styled illustrations make even the hardest of concepts a joy to follow. And yet, it provides enough hard-hitting facts about the development of modernism into postmodernism that even those with college degrees will enjoy it. This is a great start for those trying to understand the concepts of postmodernism and its effect on the world around us.
The artwork and text make this such a joy to read that I didn't want to put the book down until I had finished it. And like the very nature of postmodernism, it left me with enough thought-provoking ideas to want to question how I look at art or the world. It didn't try to pass itself off as the only authority on the matter, yet it did provide a great overview with research into the past that went beyond the standard notions of textbook history.
