At the same time Saatchi began collecting art and later opened his first gallery in London. His previous books include Charles Saatchi: Question, Known Unknowns, Dead: A Celebration of Mortality, Be the Worst You Can Be and My Name Is Charles Saatchi and I’m An Artoholic.
"For his new book the reclusive ad man and art collector (and Mr Nigella Lawson) invited the public to ask him anything. The questions were surprising, but not as surprising as his answers . . . [an] intriguing and often hilarious book." —Mail on Sunday"Think Pascal's Pensées crossed with a celebrity interview in Heat . . . . if you want to hear what the man whose taste has shaped contemporary visual culture has to say, this volume provides a pretty good pocket-sized introduction . . . . The answers feel fresh and frank. [Saatchi] is refreshingly plain-spoken . . . . For the price of a cocktail, the reader is offered an entertaining conversation with a complex but personable character." —Times
