I was disappointed.. I thought it was thrown together .. it jumped around a bit and there was duplication of information.. it seemed to be more about Michelangelo and Raphael than the Pope.. plus if you read the notes some of what he says is actually still not agreed upon.. it was an interesting read but there is no comparison to his Brunelleschi’s Dome which was spectacular... if you are interested in this time period and art ... this is a good read.. I don’t know why the pictures in the book do not include details of the ceiling or Raphael’s frescoes... the two page rather small depiction of the ceiling is not even complete! Shame on you and your editors! If you read this have a computer handy to pull up the details he discusses..
