by Walter Isaacson

Years ago, I read How to Think Like Leonardo Da Vinci, by Stephen Gelb. That left me with a mild interest in Da Vinci which isn’t that unique to say but it makes me feel all renaissance man and stuff.

Isaacson does here what Isaacson does, which is write a thorough and detailed biography of Da Vinci’s life. I found myself hoping for more of the interpretation early on, but halfway through I just settled in for the amazing details that made up Da Vinci’s life.
