Leonardo da Vinci died 500 years ago in May of 1519 so it's fitting that we take up the biography of this amazing intellectual and creative giant, the prototypical "Renaissance Man". After his highly successful biographies of Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, and Steve Jobs, Walter Isaacson immersed himself in the thousands of pages of Leonardo's notebooks, among other sources and materials, to produce this multi-faceted portrait. David McCullough wrote: "To read this magnificent biography of Leonardo da Vinci is to take a tour through the life and works of one of the most extraordinary human beings of all time and in the company of the most engaging, informed, and insightful guide imaginable. Walter Isaacson is at once a true scholar and a spellbinding writer. And what a wealth of lessons there are to be learned in these pages."
