Very detailed telling of life

I'm a slow reader so I've just started this book. I'm reading about the times he was born in. Very interesting some words I have to look up.

Great Book

I haven’t finished this book yet but am loving it! It is easy to read and though I was aware of many of the occurrences in Saint Francis’ early life it gives greater detail and adds so much to his story. It presents Saint Francis in a truly human way and as one I wish to follow. What an exemplary Saint.

I just received the book today, so I haven't had the time to start reading it.
But, I do have a problem with the book, the print is so small it is hard to read.
