From the publisher: "This publication -- Hirst's first -- is the artist's beguiling statement of his ideas and obsessions in life and art to date. Expressed in his own words, and illustrated by his own selection of over 700 images, pop-ups and special inserts, [it] encompasses the entire range of his work -- paintings, sculptures, installations and films. In this book, Hirst has created an iconoclastic work that challenges the boundaries of art, science, media and popular culture."
