I chose this book because I had been assigned to do a report on a person from the Renissance Period. I was hoping to be able to read the book quickly and still be well-informed about Michaelangelo and his life. Unfortunately, neither one of these occurances came about. The book was anything but easy to read. The high amount of names caused the book to resemble Numbers from the Old Testament. There were also far too many extraneous details that clogged the otherwise simple biography of Michaelangelo's life. Unless you are interested in the full names of the brothers of everyone Michaelangelo came in contact with, I would not reccomend this book.
