    “Private View” contains an interesting balance of anecdotes depicting Baryshnikov’s life at and preceding American Ballet Theater while also incorporating captivating photography by Eve Arnold. The photographs add another dimension to the book, bringing the stories to life. The book provides a rare behind the scenes look into life at one of the world’s most well known ballet companies, under the direction of a man who defected from Russia, a revolutionary concept at the time.

    The author does an impressive job of illustrating both the beauty of the world of ballet while revealing the grueling work the dancers endure and displaying the hardships of the dancers. The book is a great read for anyone with an appreciation for the arts.

    I would give the book 4/5 stars and I would recommend History of Dance and Swans of the Kremlin.
