    Gift for friend who loved every page

    I sent this book to an old friend for Christmas. She couldn't wait to look at the exquisite art and read the book. Her entire family wanted to read it as soon as or before than she even had a chance. Since she wouldn't have an opportunity to go there herself this was next best thing.

    Great Christmas present!

    I bought this for my mother for Christmas and she loved it! After she unwrapped it my brother took it to cut the shrink wrap off for her and it took her 2 hours to get it back from him. The pictures are stunningly clear and the descriptions are interesting and just the right length to inform you about the painting but keep you from getting bored. This book will suck you in!

    It is easy to find to find books with reproductions of Michelan

    It is easy to find to find books with reproductions of Michelangelo's works in the Sistine Chapel; it is very much more difficult to find the other works in the Sistine Chapel—The Life of Moses and the Life Jesus–in easy proximity to Michelangelo's works showing the history of the universe from Creation to Flood on the ceiling and The Last Judgment on the end wall– so that one can easily see MIchelangelo's works in the context of all of human and divine history. Had the authors of "The Sistine Secrets" thought about them, they might not have wandered off into so many silly speculations about MIchelangelo's un- and anti-Christian "program." It is nice to have all of the other artworks in the Vatican; it is essential to have the Sistine complete! The CD Rom showing all of the works is a wonderful bonus, since it makes the work completely portable! P.s. Whoever packed this very large book needs a course in packing books for shipment: the book was placed in a very large box with 8 inches of empty space and so, of course, the box was crushed and the slipcase was broken. Anyone wanting to gift this book would have been very angry to receive it in damaged condition!

    Essential for me . . ..

    My recent trip to the Vatican was my first and an amazing experience for me. This book helps me remember what I saw and what I overlooked while on a guided tour. With the restrictions on photo taking, this book provides the relevant visuals and enough narration for the identifying context. This will an excellent review before I go again.
