I'm not quite sure what I expected from this book, but I must say that I found it very disappointing. The author's personal commentary and advice are annoying, often contradictory and give the impression that she did not take her research seriously. If you are looking for a good biography on O'Keeffe or want to know more about her philosophy of art and aesthetics, then don't read this book!!!

Quirky, often hilarious, and surprisingly informative combination of bio and self-help book. Hardly the "monumental" book of the library's description - no, How Georgia Became O'Keeffe doesn't take itself that seriously. A quick, fun read that made me want to go out for a pitcher of margaritas with the author.

Amusing irreverent look at the life of Georgia O'Keefe and her life lessons for women today. Definitely written for women. Contains the highlights of her life and her motivations and is a quick read. The book does not contain the superfluous language of an art historian. A quick read if you are interested.

"For O'Keeffe, forty was the new sixty. She had no problem being known for decades as the old lady in the desert with an affinity for cow skulls..."

"...hagiography.*
*I hope I'm not the only one who has to keep reminding herself that this is not the study of hags, but writings on the saints. The term has come to mean the way that some biographers fawn embarrassingly over their subjects."
