From Library Journal:

Provocative objects are the heart of Kruger's art work. Pairing banal or perplexing photographs with phrases superimposed directly over the image, she challenges the way in which the viewer's thoughts and attitudes are determined by the dictates of society. An example is her close-cropped depiction of an atomic mushroom cloud with the legend, "Your manias become science" across the stem of the cloud. A graphic designer and television critic, Kruger manipulates the commonplace to deconstruct the messages we absorb daily without reflection; in so doing she makes a stronger challenge to the established order than such controversial artists as Serrano and Mapplethorpe. As the most complete overview of an important young artist and a fascinating addition to the debate on censorship in the arts, the book is recommended for most libraries.
