All in all, an easy to approach book that gives the lay reader or survey student a glimpse into the foundations of modern Western thought.
Choices will be arbitrary in any such compilation and some could be called into question here.
For the reader who wants a particularly large dose of Benevenuto Cellini and is not bothered by the lack of any of Alberti's tracts on Art or Architecture, this volume is economical and well translated. Perhaps somewhat more flexibility in selections could have been made for my tastes.
The reader will certainly get a flavor for the period writings in a very economical and easily accessed format that is not easily found elsewhere.
