"Miles Unger narrates the astonishing life of this driven and difficult man through six of his greatest masterpieces.  Each work expanded the expressive range of the medium, from the 'Pieta' Michelangelo carved as a brash young man, to the apocalyptic 'Last Judgment,' the work of an old man tested by personal trials. Throughout the course of his career he explored the full range of human possibility‚ĶA work of deep artistic understanding, Miles Unger's Michelangelo brings to life the irascible, egotistical, and undeniably brilliant man whose artistry continues to amaze and inspire us after 500 years."--publisher description
