  1. I enjoyed this translation much more than the Leoni translation. While some of the translated text read poorly, it was especially helpful to have the "this is what Giganti means" material at the end of each chapter.

  2. A good translation, with modern English explanations afterwards. Very well laid out and the plates (pictures) are done well.
