This book has many high quality images arranged chronologically through Sherman's career, and text to accompany it. The text has marginal notes so that one can easily flip to the image that is being mentioned in the text (a very useful feature). There are small segments of text where a particular aspect of Sherman's work is described, for example "clowns" (near the end of the book), and those parts were far more interesting than the main text. I must confess that I was mostly indifferent to, and sometimes repelled by, the works presented. I found the text to blather a bit - it just described and described the works - and when it did make some attempt at interpreting them, resorted to academic and meaningless locutions like "...subverts the language of soft porn."
