Jim Weiss depicts the youthful Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci as competitors in Renaissance Florence. Weiss transforms history into adventure as the powerful Medici family thwarts assassins, builds political unity, and supports the two young artists. Weiss packs history into 15 stories as he recounts the young artists' education? focusing on the brilliant architects, sculptors, and artists, such as Donatello and Brunelleschi, who set the stage for them. Weiss not only brings these characters to life? flaws and all, he makes listeners eager to continue the relationship, telling them to " go to your local library or bookstore and start a little renaissance of your own."
