Great Book and a very good introduction to the life and times of Michelangelo, 9 July 2006
This book is very high in my list of greatest works that I have read. I found the style very readable and full of great detail. At the end of the book there is a long list of source material that Stone has used in the preparation. I can not disagree more with one of the other reviewers who feels that the book has only lasted because of the film. I found the film to be leaded and over simplistic with some terrible miscasting. Since reading this book for the first time I have looked into the works of Michelangelo and have found that it is a great introduction to the great artist.
