    I Also Recommend:

    This book is interesting, though depressing.

    David Gibson obviously doesn't approve of Benedict's conservative policies, and this shows itself in his book on him. However, unfortunately it's easy to feel the way Gibson does. I wanted to read something good about the pope when I started this book, but I wasn't surprised to find so much negative. At least Gibson does comment on how Benedict's genuine spirituality is such an important side of him. All of the book's negativity is depressing, though. But of course if Gibson's information is actually accurate and relatively complete, that can't be helped. To be honest, my bias is that I'm sympathetic to a few of Benedict's unpopular positions, and I want him to defend them, though without being a dictator in the process. To sum up, if you're simultaneously intellectual, conservative on social issues, and into civil and human rights, this book will very likely depress you. But I have no information with which I could attack it.

    A reviewer

    This book is an excellent piece of work that focuses on the Pope Benedict XVI's life in the Vatican, and his methods on how he plans to define his papacy after that of John Paul II. This book is highly recommended for those who want to know how the pope thinks and his methods of teaching. This book is not a biography, although it gives a pretty good summary of the pope's life. Overall, a really good book!
