    Great summary of a great artist, but I loved Michelangelo already, so I might be a little biased. :)

    Interesting 4 stars: - I like most art. I did not know anything about him. I read an article on him several years ago and I do not recall it. This book is interesting. 🇺🇸

    a succinct sufficient study Well-researched, anecdotal and reflective, as well as factual, this short biography discusses all his major works as well as sketching an accurate portrait of Renaissance times, particularly in Rome and Florence.

    Hourly History again does a great job in presenting this short biography. It touched more or less all the important aspects of this great artist.

But what's more amazing is the fact that he working on paintings, sculptures, poetry, and even some engineering. The man was fantastic!! But on to the book. We have 31 pages of condensed content about Michelangelo. The book has a stamp on it on the lower right stating a bold pick-me-up of Hourly History. I couldn't resist. A quick read before going to bed and learning about one of the greats. That's inspirational. The book did take roughly an hour. I was done in 40 minutes. But the point is that it holds true to the stamp on the book. I love honest books that don't waste our time. If you are interested in Michelangelo, pick this one up. Also, you may find other books about your favorite person on amazing by this writer. I'm guessing it's more of a brand name (Hourly History). But that just makes it easier to find. Recommended for bed time reading, or just to add a quick book to your final Goodreads goal.

    After reading several other Hourly History books about famous painters, this one lacks the depth of many of the others (particularly Renoir). This is just a flat retelling of Michaelangelo's life, with little info about his relationships and possible rivalry with da Vinci. I was disappointed. After reading this, I have no more idea about what drove the man to create his masterpieces. It is a marvel that Michaelangelo finished the Sistine Chappel in only 4 years!  One of the more interesting aspec After reading several other Hourly History books about famous painters, this one lacks the depth of many of the others (particularly Renoir).

It is a marvel that Michaelangelo finished the Sistine Chappel in only 4 years!  One of the more interesting aspects of this book was the high degree of instability in the city-states of Italy at the time. It is surprising to see how many popes Michaelangelo outlived and served.  In the end, Rome and Florence fought over his body so friends smuggled his body out of Rome, so he could be interred where he wanted, in Florence with his family. Overall score = G+.

    This is basically a straight chronological run-through of Michelangelo's life. It was alright but I found myself wanting to get some more details: (1) More context about the times that Michelangelo lived (2) More explanation of how he was influenced by other artists and how he influenced others. What were his artistic innovations. (3) More discussion of Michelangelo as a person. But I can't ding this book that much since it is very short, there is only so much you can cover in 45 pages.

    Excellent read! Sometimes I get into a great biography and before you know it the book starts to great repetitive and dragging alone! I loved how this bio the author keep to the story and moved along! Right to the point short and sweet. Unlike other renaissance artists like Leonardo da Vinci there wasn’t much writing or notes that one could go by when it came to Michelangelo. But this bio was fun to read!!!

    An Easy And Brief Read 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 is a short story about an exceptional man told in a sketchy manner. The lack of any bibliography quoted in this story gives the impression that the subject is not thoroughly researched.

    An interesting and factual account of this great artist's life. In the fictionalised The Agony and the Ecstasy by Erwin Stone the main theme, as I remember it, was the way he was prevented from doing his main "thing" sculpture by an array of popes who wanted him to be a painter or an architect. You don't get that impression from this book. Maybe because it wasn't true. Always interesting to get different viewpoints. An interesting and factual account of this great artist's life.
