    Nice book

    This book has everything well organized in a easy manner. You get a nice introduction that covers the person, the town where he was from and his mentors. In case you didn't know Leonardo was from Vinci hence Leonardo Da Vinci. Either way, the book covers his manuscripts, hsi sciences, inventions, art, engineering and more. The whole collection of his works are not included otherwise the book would be huge.

    must read

    I have had the chance to view some of Leonardo Da Vinci's work while traveling and as always, I am always inspired by his work. However it wasn't until recently that I became interested in his other works. This book allowed me to see another side of the artist and I think it's so cool how talented he was outside the realm of art. If you are a fan, this is a good summary of his engineering and skills as an inventor.

    Very Interesting Book,

    This book helped my understand Leonardo better and gave me ideas about how to learn more about him. I knew some things about Leonardo—but I didn’t realize that he was so prolific. This book has some very interesting information. The skills of observation that da Vinci possessed allowed him to see a great many things at a depth that most people do not. To draw something so accurately requires such attention to details that most people are just unable to grasp. One other thing that this book highlights is da Vinci’s curious and inquisitive mind. The author believes that if we could look at the world in the same way Leonardo did we would be able to accomplish much more.

    Amazing

    I only knew Leonardo da Vinci as the painter of the world’s most famous and admired "Mona Lisa" and "The Last Supper" paintings. I also wanted to learn more about him and his life and this book provided me all the things about Leonardo that I did not know. I am amazed how a famous master like Da Vinci received no formal education beyond basic reading, writing and math. It was interesting to learn that his portraits were sending messages. That is what separated the master from the greats.

    AMAZING

    THIS WAS MY SECOND KOBO BOOK - AMAZING PERSON - I KNEW HE HAD DONE A LOT AS I AM AN ENGINEER, BUT DID NOT REALIZE THAT HIS MIND WAS GOOD IN SO MANY AREAS FROM ART TO TECHNOLOGY - AND THIS WAS BEFORE THE CALCULUS WAS INVENTED. AMAZING
