"He was history's most creative genius. What secrets can he teach us? The [bestselling biographer] brings Leonardo da Vinci to life in this exciting new biography. Drawing on thousands of pages from Leonardo's astonishing notebooks and new discoveries about his life and work, Walter Isaacson weaves a narrative that connects his art to his science. He shows how Leonardo's genius was based on skills we can improve in ourselves, such as passionate curiosity, careful observation, and an imagination so playful that it flirted with fantasy. His creativity, like that of other great innovators, came from standing at the intersection of the humanities and technology. He peeled flesh off the faces of cadavers, drew the muscles that move the lips, and then painted history's most memorable smile on the Mona Lisa. He explored the math of optics, showed how light rays strike the cornea, and produced illusions of changing perspectives in The Last Supper. Isaacson also describes how Leonardo's lifelong enthusiasm for staging theatrical productions informed his paintings and inventions. His ability to combine art and science, made iconic by his drawing of what may be himself inside a circle and a square, remains the enduring recipe for innovation. 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 it; to be imaginative and, like talented misfits and rebels in any era, to think different."--Jacket.… (lisätietoja)

The thought and curiosity of Leonardo da Vinci is on display on every page in Walter Isaacson's masterful biography. Leading the reader like a tour guide through the many places and phases of Leonardo's life, Isaacson provides both details of the art but also context through capturing the background of the history, persons, and achievements that were experienced and made by Leonardo throughout his lengthy career.

I was impressed with Leonardo's constant creativity noted as much, if not more, in his notebooks and in his completed works; which included drawings, sculpture, paintings, and more. Present are the differences that made Leonardo unique -- his left-handedness, his holistic views, his curiosity, and a relentless desire to know that made possible his improbable life as an artist, scientist, thinker, dreamer, and mathematician. The list of his interests is almost endless just as his curiosity was boundless. In the tradition of thinkers going back to Aristotle he revered man's desire for knowledge as seen in his statement: "The desire to know is natural to good men."

Born out of wedlock in 1452 in the town of Vinci, he spent most of his life in Florence, Milan, and Rome, ending his days in France as a guest of the King. It was a peripatetic life premised on the primacy of sight and mind applied to the world around him in ways that seem phenomenal in retrospect and which, in spite of his successes and honors, were mitigated by his inability to finish projects. This too, impressed me as the wonders of his sketches and notes match and in some ways exceed the art he produced; art that includes "The Last Supper", the "Mona Lisa", and much more.

Isaacson captures much of the wonder, but leaves the reader perplexed at times by his inability to truly penetrate the mind of Leonardo. The length of the text suggests a completeness that is not quite enough; perhaps no biographer could capture the totality of the magnificence of Leonardo. If ever there was an exemplar of the Renaissance Man it would be this polymath personnage from the small Italian village of Vinci. ( )

An engrossing and informative work. ( )

Overall a pretty good book that taught many things I didn't know about Leonardo Da Vinci (I hardly knew anything to begin with), as well as teaching me to examine and appreciate art more thoroughly.

However I felt like the book really started to drag on near the end, which made for very labored reading. ( )

A throughly-researched, easy-to-read examination of the life and work of Leonardo. In places, for me, there was too much information about the interests that absorbed Leonardo - ones which took time away from his painting as well as informed it.(In fact, I was surprised to learn how few paintings he completed in his life. I recall it was only about twenty.) However, at the end of Isaacson's book I felt I had got to know and understand Leonardo the man and his times as well as the many passions he pursued beyond painting. So, that was good. ( )

Arquétipo e símbolo do homem da Renascença, Leonardo da Vinci é universalmente reconhecido como o génio mais criativo e multifacetado da História.
A sua criatividade, como aquela de grandes inovadores, nascia na interseção entre as humanidades e a tecnologia.
Esfolou rostos de cadáveres, desenhou os músculos que fazem mover os lábios, e depois pintou o sorriso mais memorável da História em Mona Lisa. Explorou a matemática da ótica, mostrou como os raios de luz atingem a córnea e produziu ilusões de perspetivas variáveis em A Última Ceia.

No seu eterno entusiasmo pela encenação de espetáculos imaginava máquinas que subiriam aos céus, permitindo ao homem voar como os pássaros.

Filho ilegítimo, à margem de uma educação formal, vegetariano, canhoto, distraído e, por vezes, herético, o Leonardo da Vinci retratado neste livro é uma pessoa real, extraordinária pela pluralidade de interesses e pelo prazer que tinha em combiná-los.

Recorrendo a milhares de páginas dos impressionantes cadernos deixados por Leonardo da Vinci, e atendendo às mais recentes descobertas sobre a sua obra e trajetória de vida, Walter Isaacson revela-nos facetas desconhecidas do artista, desfazendo a aura sobre-humana que lhe é atribuída e mostrando como a genialidade de Leonardo se fundamenta em características bastante «humanas», moldadas por uma enorme vontade e ambição e assentes em habilidades que cada um de nós pode cultivar, não isentas de imperfeições e fraquezas.
