A Renaissance Prince If you're a fan of the TV series on Leonardo da Vinci, you'll enjoy this book. Lorenzo was Leonardo's great patron and friend. I learned a lot I didn't know. The book  does a good job describing Renaissance Italy and the people who made the era so incredible. I really enjoyed this book and will recommend it to my friends.
