    1. First things first. This could have been a VERY dry and boring book. But thanks to a great author, and equally great translator, it was very readable. The book begins with a young nobleman leaving France with a box containing about 10,000 pages of writings and drawings which he would faithfully watch over for 50 years- his inheritance from his friend Leonardo da Vinci. The author then takes us on an amazing journey through da Vinci's adult life. Klein doesn't make him out to be super human, but [...]

    2. Before reading this exploration of Leonardo Da Vinci's work, I couldn't see what was so great about the Mona Lisa. Now, Stefan Klein has convinced me why Leonardo was ahead of his time in so many ways.This Leonardo is eternally curious, a man of creativity and ideas, who believed that art and science went hand-in-hand. He used his scientific studies of optics, anatomy, flight, and the movement of water to create his art. He drew incredibly detailed, artistic depictions of his many inventions. Ir [...]

    3. Uno dei più famosi visionari della storia, Leonardo Da Vinci, nella metà dello scorso millennio ha rivoluzionato ogni campo allora conosciuto: dagli studi di anatomia, all'ingegneria militare e l'arte, ma non solo. Immaginò per primo i computer digitali, disegnò automi funzionanti, le sue macchine volanti erano le prime ad essere veramente sofisticate, alcune planavano dolcemente per chilometri fino ad atterrare nel mezzo della capitale del territorio fiorentino. Un Prodigium che continua a [...]

    5. A thoughtful and quite detailed account of possibly the greatest polymath to have ever lived. I learned a lot about Leonardo but I didn't find it the book itself be all that exciting - it feels like it was missing something, I cannot say what

    6. While people LOVE to mention Leonardo, that's all they do: mention him, followed by a laundry list of achievements observed at face value, devoid of depth. This was even the case for me, despite having graduated from an art college where we took many, many art history classes. This book investigates all of Leonardo's artistic and scientific interests, intermingled with bits of his biography. The writing maintains a pleasant balance between the narration of his life, the facts, and the author's p [...]

    7. Klein organizes his book into sections that focus on different subjects Leonardo studied throughout his life. First his famous Mona Lisa painting, then water, war, the dream of flying, robots, and finallly, Leonardo's adventures in anatomy. Throughout the book, Klein tells the reader of the different periods and events of Leonardo's life. These accounts are also intermixed with first person experiences from the author as he travels the world visiting different places Leonardo lived and his noteb [...]

    8. A most excellent biography of da Vinci. Well written with a chronology of his life and most importantly, how he thought! Da Vinci thought visually, therefore he was far more than a painter, and much of what he drew and wrote is still valid and in use today. With little formal education he was able to visualize and translate his research into drawings and formulate theories of how things worked. His study of water movement was ground breaking. He was an engineer who design instruments of war, can [...]

    9. I need a little nonfiction right now, and who better than Da Vinci. Anything about Da Vinci is riveting. This book was more about the genius of his perspective on the world and less about the genius of his accomplishments. I still think his drawings and experiments were outstanding. Even his theories and inventions that he never tested are quite amazing for his time. The epilogue addressed that more Da Vincis could be out there in the world, but with the societies we've created for ourselves we [...]

    10. A look at Leonardo's notebooks and the way he looked at his world. He was an intuitive scientist without training. I loved that Klein mentions several times that Leonardo's math skills were very poor, but he was able to solve engineering problems using his drawing ability to work out the problem.This could have been a boring book, but Klein keeps things interesting, shifting easily from present to past and back again.

    11. Leonardo was the man of a million talent. This book shows a number of his many jornal pages that details his thoughts and invention. When you read this book, you would see the many things of our world that Da Vinci had thought of. He truly was a man ahead of his time. This book contains invention like machines that were used for war and transportation. One of my favorites was that of his anatomy studies.

    12. I read this a few years ago when I was obsessed with da Vinci. Super easy to read and interesting the entire time. Great book, hopefully I can read it again some day because Leonardo truly was an incredible man who lived a life worth reading about.

    13. Da Vinci fascinates me beyond belief. What an intricate mind he possessed. I think the author captured that fabulously.

    14. I found this book incredibly interesting, though I think that some of the author was over-exaggerating some of his life and the time period. Overall, this book was a great read.
