Good overview of the Medici family's history, which makes it a good overview of the Italian Renaissance - at least from a political and social perspective. Not a ton of detail on the art and science of the time, unfortunately; I'll have to get that elsewhere. But I knew that going in.

I've also had an interest in Italian history. The Medici family make up a huge part of that history. This book was a bit of struggle to get through. The history was amazing but the writing style was a bit boring in telling that history.
