This book appeals to a select audience. Those who enjoy reading about the great chase for the treasures of the world. Treasures that wars have been fought over. Those who enjoy reading about the super-rich and their foibles. Those who enjoy reading about the intrigues and back stabbings in elite organizations (this book makes The Apprentice look like a pillow fight). And finally those who enjoy reading about a man's all consuming ambition to succeed and yet through it all remain passionate about great art. If any of the above is your cub of tea then you are going to love this. I absolutely recommend his later book 'False Impressions'. And yes, the author spares no punches in his analysis of alot of famous people.

I bought this book years ago. I lent it to someone who didn't return it. So this is my second time with this title. I have always been interested in Egyptology. This book gives great insight into the behind the scenes life of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I enjoy Paul Hoving's writing so much that I gave his other titles as well.

This book was a treat to read, in part because of how much this highlighted just how professionalized museums have gotten over the last half-century compared to this. It is fascinating to see how museum ethics have evolved also. To boot, Hoving is a fascinating character and fun to follow. Highly recommended, especially for those in the New York art world.

Gossipy and brutally dull. Two stars is being generous.
