We're planning a trip to Rome and thought this would an interesting read before visiting the Vatican. What are the essentials that a new pope with no background would have to know about being pope and living in Vatican City? Mr. Marchant has gathered together the basics (clothes, buildings of the Vatican, staff, rituals, duties, travel, recreation and much more) and outlined them in a pleasant, easy-to-read fashion. As a Catholic, I was particular pleased that the book is completely factual and unoffensive.

If you want to see how the Roman Catholic religion has inspired art over the last five hundred years, this is the place to.Skip the overpriced stale panini in the kiosks around Vatican City and make for neighborhood local Il Sorpasso.

If you want to see how the Roman Catholic religion has inspired art over the last five hundred years, this is the place to do it. Getty. The Raphael Rooms, along with The Last Judgement, are pretty much the reason people come to the Vatican Museums in the first place. If you’re here and you don’t see this, you’ve probably got a very good story explaining why. An easy 15-minute walk from St. Peter’s Basilica, it manages to be unassuming and chic at the same time-basically, the trattoria of our dreams.

If you’re visiting the Vatican in August or early September, there’s a good chance that the Pope will be holding the Papal Audience in his residence at Castel Gandolfo, an hour outside of Rome. I chose the latter of the two. The Pope drives by these barriers in his Popemobile.

Congratulations, Your Holiness, and welcome to your first day at the Holy See. After being elected by the College of Cardinals, you'll need to don the papal vestments and get right to work.

We're planning a trip to Rome and thought this would an interesting read before visiting the Vatican. I haven't read it yet but have had a pretty good preview through browsing it and through our 13 year old son's reading. He couldn't put this book down and read it in less than a day during which he was constantly and excitedly talking to us about incredible insider facts and historical notes about the Pope and the Vatican. His enthusiasm has made me look forward to it's rotation in my reading schedule. In short, we've already more than gotten our money's worth from this book and highly recommend it to other families.

What a fun little book this is! I came across it by accident, read it from cover to cover in less than an hour, and couldn't have had a more enjoyable time.

The conceit of the book is that the reader has just been elected pope. What are the essentials that a new pope with no background would have to know about being pope and living in Vatican City? Mr. Marchant has gathered together the basics (clothes, buildings of the Vatican, staff, rituals, duties, travel, recreation and much more) and outlined them in a pleasant, easy-to-read fashion.

As a Catholic, I was particular pleased that the book is completely factual and unoffensive. Unless you are bothered by the idea of imaging yourself as pope, there is nothing here but history, geography and a light touch. Nothing to get angry about. So read it and enjoy!

A fun book that also has some interesting facts. A great gift for that really religious friend of yours to let him know just how much you enjoy ;) his frequent pontificating.

Although I think the intent is comedy--and there a more than a few chuckles here--it is done in a format that sticks to the factual. I learned more about Papal customs and Vatican operations from this than I had ever even thought about. That being said, I am from a Jewish home, so take that with a grain of salt. Recommended.

When I saw the title of this book, I expected it to be a book that was attacking my Church while "trying" to be funny. I have to say my expectations were proven to be wrong. It is a great little book that answers questions about the everyday life of the leader of my Church that I didn't even know I had! I learned a lot, laughed a lot, and was humbled. Kudos to the author.
Right. Well, yes, I'm biased, but I found it a bloody good read -- many facts and details about Popes -- as well as perfectly sound advice for incoming popes, all written in pithy little nuggets of information. Learn about the VC and all of its peculiar charms, become acquainted with the daily duties and responsibilities of the office, find out (extremely) hard-to-find details about the Pope's day-to-day living. Who does his laundry? What does he eat for breakfast? Who makes the Popemobile? And what's the deal with exorcisms, anyway? I don't need to tell you this would make a perfect gift this holiday season do I? I do? Well, then, there you are. Enjoy!
