    "Always a great topic and Michelangelo is a fabulous biographical read. It was fantastic to learn about him and how the paintings were done. I found he was and still is considered one of the greatest artists of all time. I loved it."

    "This is a powerful biography. Michaelangelo is a much-written-about artist, both personally and artistically. But most are only about himself as an artist - this is as much a history text as anything else, and makes a powerful argument that understanding the man requires understanding his era. This is a fascinating examination of a man from multiple angles, and is not to be missed."

    "This is an incredibly interesting picture book about Michelangelo's David. I bought it for my young daughter to read, but I actually ended up reading it myself! The text is informative and the illustrations are lovely."

    "The Letters of Michelangelo is one of the better biographies which is actually written by Michelangelo himself. It has its errors with how old it was but I believe the authenticity of him writing it himself makes up for any errors. "
