From Library Journal:

McLeish's enjoyment and energy are evident, but his companion is really not a reference book. It is little more than opinion, interesting but "from the point of view of someone experiencing the works for the first time." He covers some 550 figures, mainly European and American, some living, with a 250-500-word commentary and brief bibliography for each, arranged in sections on architects, writers, film directors, composers, stage directors and choreographers, and painters. There are cross references, an index of names and titles, brief introductions to each section, and a short glossary. For the home; libraries need more detailed and authoritative sources. William A. Wortman, Miami Univ. Libs., Oxford, Ohio
