About the book:
Leonardo da Vinci was historys most creative genius. What secrets can he teach us?
Walter Isaacson, author of the acclaimed bestsellers Steve Jobs, Einstein, and Benjamin Franklin, brings da Vinci to life in this exciting new biography.
Based on thousands of pages from Leonardos astonishing notebooks, as well as new discoveries about his life and work, Walter Isaacson weaves a narrative that connects art and science. Da Vinci is best known for being the artist behind the two most famous paintings in history, The Last Supper and the Mona Lisa. But in his own mind, he was just as much a man of science and technology. With a passion that sometimes became obsessive, he pursued innovative studies of anatomy, fossils, birds, the heart, flying machines, botany, geology, and weaponry. His ability to stand at the crossroads of the humanities and the sciences, made iconic by his drawing of Vitruvian Man, made him historys most creative genius.
Leonardos delight at combining diverse passions remains the ultimate recipe for creativity. So, too, does his ease at being a bit of a misfit in his own time: illegitimate, gay, vegetarian, left-handed, easily distracted, and at times heretical. His life should remind us of the importance of instilling, both in ourselves and our children, not just received knowledge but a willingness to question itto be imaginative and, like talented misfits and rebels in any era, to think differently.
