This story will help describe what I think about this book. I went backpacking through Europe in 1990 for 3 months on a budget of about $15 a day. I was so inspired by this book that I almost purchased it, even though it would have reduced the length of my trip by a day, and I would have had to carry it around for 2 months. Instead, I listened to my Walkman and paged through the book for about 45 minutes before leaving. I regretted not purchasing the book for the rest of my trip. In 2009, I returned to Rome with my wife for our first anniversary and went to one of the Vatican Museums specifically to see if this book still existed. It is the only trinket I purchased on our 2 week trip. It cost 15 Euros (about $20).
At the end of the book, there is a beautiful tribute to Michelangelo's work on this particular Pieta. I haven't seen it (the book) at the Vatican in years. If you ever get the opportunity to own it and love art, black and white photography and (one of) Michelangelo's finest works, get it.
