It was well written and I read the chapters cover to cover, this is the first book that I have actually read so thoroughly and it was actually interesting. Everything that was on the test was from this book and not from the lecture portion of the class.

the amount of pictures was very helpful because it provided lots of visuals, and the text was pretty easy to read
This text is much more vast in the material it covers then other Art History texts I have used. It ends up being slightly vague in some areas, leaving you wanting more on a subject in some particularly interesting areas, however the amount of information and history that it covers is impressive.read more
Some of the sections it covers were not helpful or needed in the class I was taking, however would probably be interesting to read on my own time.
