Pressestimmen

"An intensely argued polemic against the intellectually supercilious, the snooty rich and the worship of high culture as a secular religion for the spiritually refined and socially heartless. Anyone seriously interested in the arts should read it."--Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World
"Smart, saucy."--Newsday
"Anyone who still insists on lecturing us about 'high' culture and its superiority to 'mass' culture should be made to read John Carey's 'What Good Are the Arts?'.... Carey defines art, tells us what it's good for and has enormous fun dismantling the claims of aesthetic theorists, from Kant onward. It's been a long time since I've read a saner book." --Nick Hornby, Favorite Book of 2005 selection, Los Angeles Times Book Review
"Brilliant, funny, and insightful.... Makes a compelling and persuasive case that creative expression--especially the written word--is absolutely central to a rich and thoughtful life."--New York Post
"Exhilarating and suggestive.... Professor John Carey is at his most acerbic, combative and impassioned in this brilliant polemic."--Rupert Christiansen, Spectator
"An informative, thought-provoking and entertaining book on a subject that rarely produces writing with all three qualities."--David Lodge, Sunday Times
"Brilliantly stimulating and timely."--Helen Meany, Irish Times
"Engaged, provocative and frequently funny."--Sam Leith, Daily Telegraph
"Incisive and inspirational.... How interesting it would be if Careys anti-elitist values were adopted and put into practice. Next time the post of chair of the Arts Council becomes vacant, someone ought to nominate him."--Blake Morrison, Guardian
"Brilliant, erudite and often hilarious.... Carey has already been voted one of Britain's top public intellectuals. What Good Are The Arts? should enhance and cement that reputation."--Julian Baggini, Sunday Herald
