I've read "The Agony and the Ecstasy" but that was a fictionalized account of Michelangelo. This is a simple relaying of the facts of Michelangelo 's life. It was interesting to note how many different popes he actually worked for. If you ever wondered about the artist that painted the Sistine chapel, read this book.

This book is like an inventory of his greatest works. There is little about him as a person and very little about the circumstances under which the works were created. For a quickie about him, this is fine. I wanted more information.
