Book Overview

Andy Warhol claimed that he loved being outside a party so that he could get in. But more often than not, the party was at his own studio, the Factory, where celebrities from Edie Sedgwick and Allen Ginsberg to the Rolling Stones and the Velvet Underground gathered in an ongoing bash.
In The Philosophy of Andy Warhol the enigmatic Warhol makes the reader his confidant on love, sex, food, beauty, fame, work, money, success, and much more.
* Andy on love: People should fall in love with their eyes closed. Just close your eyes. Don't look.
* Andy on beauty: I really don't care that much about 'Beauties.' What I really like are Talkers.
* Andy on money: It's always good to get abstract when it comes to economics.
* Andy on class: The rich have many advantages over the poor, but the most important one, as far as I'm concerned, is knowing how to talk and eat at the same time.
* Andy on underwear: I would rather watch somebody buy their underwear than read a book they wrote.
Andy Warhol (1928-1987), a painter and graphic artist, also produced a significant body of film work, including his famous Chelsea Girls. Equally well known in the late sixties and early seventies as resident host at his studio, the Factory, Warhol died in New York in 1987.

   Wish he hadn't left us all so soon.
Here, Andy Warhol shares a great deal about himself with a simple and uncluttered writing style. I have always been a great fan of his artwork and his films, and this book offers a unique opportunity to peek inside the wonderfully whimsical and brilliantly creative mind that developed them. Heaps of thinking and creative process come alive for readers on the printed page, and his honesty and unself-consciousness of expressing ideas is truly refreshing. Wish he had not left us all so soon.
   I read this over ... and over ... and over ... and over
If you love Andy, this book is for you. Even if you don 't love Andy, this book is an easy page turner. I read it while tanning a few summers ago after a friend let me borrow it. A few months later I ordered the easy read and enjoyed it for myself!
   I would have liked to see more examples of his work in accompaniment ...
I never appreciated the philosophy of Georgia O 'Keeffe until I attended a showing of his work side by side with Andy's work. Of course, I was prejudiced in favor of O'keeffe. When I saw their work side by side, however, I could see a similarity in their philosophies that I had never imagined, and would have liked to see more examples of his work in accompanying all the wordiness of the book. What is the saying that a picture is worth a thousand words?
   Andy Aspie?
A condition known as Asperger's syndrome has come to light since Warhol's death. It is named after an Austrian doctor who discovered it in 1940 in a group of his patients. Due to the outbreak of WW2, his research papers remained untranslated until quite recently. In short, autism can be seen as one of the less severe forms of Asperger's syndrome. an individual impairment of verbalsocial skills, a sensitivity to sensory overload, and a comfort found in repetitive actions. Visually, many aspies are problem solvers. If this sounds interesting to you, try reading this book together with Elijah's Cup by Valerie Paradiz and see the strong parallels between the two.
Andy Warhol managed and respected his boundaries by his own perspective of life, and set his boundaries. Try reading Elijah's Cup first, then you 'll understand Andy Warhol more.
   Warhol's Philsophy: A daily reader..
This book has its moments. I really don 't relish the pages of Andy's ramblings, which have absolutely nothing to do with Brigit Polk's philsophy, but are just a cheap filler. It can be amusing, but very boring. When his views are stumbled upon, they are uplifting, funny and are Warhol's best. I read them every morning when I wake up... right before work!
   Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol is known for putting America back on its face. He's way of thinking is unusual and exuberant. The book made me see things from an angle I never thought to look at. As a fan of not only Andy Warhol's work, this book satisfied my wish to come a little closer from understanding his brilliant mind. One of my favorite books is.
   sheer warholian goodness
This book takes you into Andy Warhol's mind. He is so funny and sarcastic. No wonder that everyone loved him. I am a big fan of Warhol and this book is wonderful. In my opinion, a must-read.
   My favourite book.
It keeps your interest throughout the day. It is pure Warhol.
   Loved this quirky read!
I hung out at a border one afternoon when i got hold of this book and I read all 200 something pages in a few intense hours! I am sure that the borders - staff did not appreciate reading this gem for free, but I couldn t peel myself from it. Was this Warhol Guy a character? This one is out there!!!
