Summary:
Leonardo da Vinci created 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 engineering. 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 history's most creative genius. Drawing on new discoveries and thousands of pages from da Vinci's notebooks, Isaacson brings Leonardo da Vinci to life, showing why his combination of science, art, technology, and imagination remains an enduring recipe for creativity.
