Anyone familiar with the works of Michelangelo will enjoy this tale of his life and how the artist lived and interacted with the world around him. It's not a book to be read in one sitting but gives some insight to the artist's passion, his family dynamics and the political and royal interactions of the time period. Worth delving into for those who want to learn more and still escape into the colorful and difficult life of a renaissance artist. Recommended for late night reading but not a beach book.
