Reviews

`In Isaacson, Leonardo gets the biographer he deserves - an author capable of comprehending his often frenetic, frequently weird quest to understand. This is not just a joyful book; it's also a joy to behold...Isaacson deserves immense praise for this very human portrait of a genius' * The Times *
`lavish, loving biography of the great Renaissance polymath...this sumptuous, elegantly written and diligently produced offering that perfectly catches the contradictions of the man...[a] splendid work that provides an illuminating guide to the output of one of the last millenium's greatest minds' * The Observer *
`extremely accomplished and fluent biography of the ultimate Renaissance Man...While Isaacson gives full measure to the grandeur of Leonardo's project, he also deftly describes the human beneath the superhuman' * Culture Magazine, The Sunday Times *
'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 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' -- David McCullough
