Displaying great diversity and creativity, Picasso, Kandinsky, Duchamp, Boccioni and others established the dominant paths their successors would follow for a century.

Hyperbole and a half. Recommended by an author in Entertainment magazine. Many chapters made me laugh out loud, although some were depressing! Loved the drawings, which added a lighthearted touch.
