    • what an unorthodox and brilliant book--cross-genre in the truest sense--and so liberating. almost a declaration of artistic independence. it is sectioned into 9 "chapters" or so that instruct you on how to create an art piece in a particular genre: music/painting/poetry/event//object/dance/film/etc. in its range, the book is truly democratic, imagining all the possibilities for experiencing and creating art in so many ways. in its elliptical language, the book is deceptively simple, challenging [...]


    • Appreciating Yoko as more than John's wife is one of the best things that ever happened to me. The pieces in this book are hit-or-miss for me, but much love for Yoko.For your listening pleasure, some of my favorites: x, x, x.

    • I meanI'm not sure how to review this book. It is a piece of incredible artistic work, only because it really allows you into Yoko Ono's thought process. It gives us a glimpse of how she viewed the world, her ideology and her quirkiness. Her creativity came through in every piece, it really gave me a clear idea how she worked and how she is an artist in every sense of the word. It is an intimate look into her works - music, art, poetry, film and exhibitionism. In every aspect of her life, her un [...]

    • I can't believe these reviews! To people who hated it and who hate Yoko Ono: wtf have you ever done that made me feel good about life? Have you ever slowed down time through the economy of words? Have you ever made me wonder? Yoko Ono likes simple words everyone can understand arranged in small, beautiful koans! Little bouquets of language! Just like flowers! You have to stop and smell them!!! What's not to understand/like? I love this!! GTFO!


    • I became aware of this book because of my interest in the Beatles and John Lennon. Yoko Ono's art is one of those things that you either love or hate. I happen to love it. This is a book of instructions.le koan-like thoughts like; "imagine the clouds dripping. Dig a hole in your garden to put them in." Some of them are bizarre, some of them are poetic, some of them are painful, but they are all thought-provoking and beautiful - just like Yoko. Read this, and you'll understand why John fell in lo [...]





    • Book Report: Grapefruit by Yoko OneI’ve avoided writing this review for a long time. I find it easy to review books that have plots, that tell stories, that are logical, even if that logic only works in the reality of the story. And if the book doesn’t have a plot or a story, and it’s not particularly easy to understand, then I depend on its lyrical language. So it’s difficult for me to review and rate Grapefruit. This is not a book with a plot, or a story, or particularly beautiful lang [...]


    • Ok, this was a very important bk to me. In 1975 when I read this, I wd've just recently heard Ono's "Fly" LP wch I also loved enormously so when I read this it had plenty of impact. I was probably just learning about Fluxus in general at the time. This is "A book of instructions + drawings by Yoko Ono" & it exemplifies Fluxus short performance index card scores - such as the ones also explored by George Brecht. I have "LIGHT PIECE" circled in pencil: "Carry an empty bag. Go to the top of a h [...]


    • Let people copy or photograph your paintings. Destroy the originals.1964 Spring*I was inspired to read this book after sitting through brunch with a middle-aged dude who spent the whole pancake course sh*tting upon Ono, specifically for her bizarre (but, I would claim, intentionally subversive and hilarious), screeching performance as a backup singer for John Lennon and Chuck Berry's otherwise standard duet of "Memphis, Tennessee". (YouTube it.)Within my age and weight category, I am probably on [...]


    • In this playful book of “instructional poems,” Yoko Ono allows readers to become participants of their own sensory experience. Words and scattered drawings make up this abstract but pleasant book, where Yoko will tell the reader to do something to enhance life: “Steal a moon on the water with a bucket./ Keep stealing until no moon is seen on the water.” Or, “Carry a bag of peas./ Leave a pea wherever you go.” This style of writing allows the reader to conceptualize the act, and be th [...]


    • Revisitar este libro después de leer el ACORN representa un contraste y a la vez una proeza:Si algo tiene de sobra Yoko Ono, es paciencia y ver las líneas que trazó aquí para ser reflejadas 50 años después en el otro es algo digno de tomar en alto aprecio.Este libro (objeto) es muy bueno y si ACORN nunca hubiera sido publicado, sería el mejor, pero el tiempo ha vuelto refinados sus gustos, sus palabras exactas. En este aun se nota un tono oscuro, anarquista de ver arder el mundo, del happ [...]


    • So you still think Yoko broke up the Beatles? Get over it. One great way to do so would be reading this book. It's quick, light, and madly creative. The book consists of a catalog of performance art pieces for you to try -- most of which are completely impossible. One I try to practice is imagining snow is falling all the time. It's the heat of the summer, and I am certain my fellow Texans will agree that this is refreshing.


    • Oh, Yoko. What will we do with you? I'm a huge huge fan of Yoko's music but this book just seemed silly to me. I dislike things (and people) that tell me to be still and breathe for a minute, and that that will change my life. I'll do that when I feel like it, thanks! I suppose I'm glad it existseven though I DIDN'T burn it after reading as instructed, out of spite.


    • Those who expect to find a cute story or anectode like Patti Smith's "Just Kids" or those who know the exact definition of art and are really really sure that Yoko Ono's work is not it, will be highly disappointed with this book. If you don't expect anything from the book, it can be quite interesting.It made me happy. While reading it, I looked at the sky a lot more than usual.


    • Man, whatever Yoko says. Seriously, most people don't know (or outright deny) that Yoko was far more famous an artist than John. I bought this book a a joke, but it is actually really great. Yoko is a brilliant woman. And the Beatles were going to break up anyway. So eat that!


    • if you're feeling aimless or a little lost, you can always pick up GRAPEFRUIT and let ono offer an assignment. they are verbal, visual, imaginative, hopeful and productive. ono is a tender writer and a fierce instructor.




    • I didn't hate it, but I wish some parts had been rearranged. "To the Wesleyan People" would have been helpful first as it explains her views on art and what she hoped to achieve with her events vs happenings, also add to that her ideas about mind music and perception - which is almost like a meditation on finding zen in a small repetitive action. "On Films" would have been nice as a second chapter for a similar reason. Otherwise it's pretty hit or miss for me as far as an art concept book goes - [...]


    • Yoko Ono's never gotten a fair shake. Recently, the art establishment has lent her individual artistic prowess some modicum of respect, but the public still sees Ono merely as a strange shrill woman who broke up The Beatles. It's an undeserved and unfortunate albatross slung around her neck. Nevermind that The Beatles were hurdling toward a break-up any day--minimizing her influence to that of just John Lennon's girlfriend ignores everything that makes Yoko Ono remarkable. Grapefruit captures th [...]


    • Grapefruit. I originally thought of doing this review as a cute and clever list, mimicking the style of Yoko Ono's experimental text. Unfortunately, I'm perpetually late to the party. Because that's already been done (and well), I figured I would stick to the straight and narrow.Ok, first impression. This book is cute. Small, a cheery yellow cover, a little round Yoko on the front. The cuteness persists in the oddball scraggly drawings and a strange and thought provoking series of instructions. [...]


    • I have a lot of love for Yoko Ono, but I struggled with this book as it seemed uncharacteristically self-serving. Though not my favorite of her works, it did produce a few gems for me within it. Grapefruit is a book that I assume many people would disagree on and maybe in that way, it is a successful work.1// VENUS OF MIRO PIECEHand out small portions to people whocome to see.Ask them to polish them at home.Ask them to bring them back in fiftyyears to put the Venus together again.1964 spring2// [...]


    • I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Yoko and this collection of imagination. Yoko gives instructions for observing and appreciating the world around you. There are many pieces here that could form the basis for beautiful and productive meditations, ways to explore internal imagery, as well as physical, activity-based creative interventions.One of her sets of instructions asks you to poke a pin through a canvas and then hold it up to your face and look through the pinhole at your frien [...]


    • Este libo cambio mi vida cuando lo lei por primera vez a los 15 años. Fui a hacer el pedido a la libreria porque era imposible de conseguir, y me trajeron la primera edicion en español por un precio ridiculo (demasiado barato, aunque bastante deteriorado). Desde entonces lo tengo siempre a mano, leyendo un par de instrucciones por dia, siempre con una reflexion diferente. Gente que no tiene afinidad con la literatura experimental, abstenerse.


    • Loved it! It is really small and it may get repetitive in some parts, but it is a lot of fun! I like Yoko's concept of painting. As an art form, we tend to limit painting to the conventional medium, as an ideal, "painting" is done in many ways. The main instruction of Yoko is to create an aesthetic message with whatever it is within our reach (or not, I'll give the option just as she does), even if it is a mere thought, or someone else's name.
