Booklist Review

Sumptuously illustrated with 150 colorplates, this guidebook offers a fascinating inner glimpse into both the public and the private sectors of the Vatican. Beginning with an introduction to daily life in Vatican City and a detailed account of the pope's typical day, Vatican correspondent Accattoli wanders through the pope's private apartments; tours the Vatican libraries, gardens, and museums; and visits the Vatican post office, grocery store, and pharmacy. In addition, the author also introduces the pontiff's personal staff and offers commentary on how John Paul II manages to integrate the grace and beauty of the ancient traditions of the church with the frantic pace and hectic demands of contemporary society. Tourists and Vatican watchers will relish this peek into the papal residence. --Margaret Flanagan
