One of the best, I'm and artist and I've listened to The Agony and The Ecstasy for years on books on tape, but tapes wore out so I ordered the audio book and am very pleased with it.
How much I identify with Michelangelo, the only difference between us is that he was a genius and a great artist, I'm not a genius and I'm only a good artist, also the historical significance.
Feeling and emotion
After Michelangelo finished the Pieta' and his friends helped him place it, he later came back and put his name on it. The most moving part of the book to me was when he rode away. He had completed one of the greatest pieces of art ever conceived and there was no one there. He and his few friends were the only ones who knew what he had accomplished. I cry every time I get to this part in this wonderful story. I have a tear in my eye right now.
