In Leonardo da Vinci, Sherwin Nuland completes his 20-year quest to understand an unlettered man who was a painter, architect, engineer, philosopher, mathematician, and scientist. What was it that propelled Leonardo's insatiable curiosity? Nuland finds clues in his subject's art, relationships, and scientific studies. He detects the siren voice that so often lured the great artist into the arms of science, Leonardo's fascination with anatomy, first as the basis for his paintings and then as the crucial component in his aim to systematize all knowledge of nature. Scholarly and passionate, Nuland's Leonardo da Vinci takes us deep into the first truly modern, empirical mind, one that was centuries ahead of its time. Download and start listening now!

    " It's a fine short biography, a good introduction to da Vinci. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kirk Bower | 1/4/2014

    " Short but very comprehensive. I didn't crack any codes, but I was never good at that. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Joe Hilley | 1/2/2014

    " This book started well, but then the writing became awkward with a lot of jumping ahead in time, then coming back, which destroyed the chronology of the book and made it hard to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Meltha | 12/9/2013

    " A biography of da Vinci written from the point of view not of an art historian or "da Vinci code" expert, but a biologist. This is da Vinci the scientist. The man was, without a doubt, brilliant. "
