Explore the life and historical setting of the man whose very name is synonymous with creativity, curiosity and inventive genius. Anatomist, artist, astronomer, biologist, botanist, city planner, dramatist, engineer, geologist, inventor, militarist, ornithologist, physicist – Leonardo questioned all, created much amid the turbulent Renaissance world of mighty popes and princes – the Medicis, Sforzas, and Borgias. This passionate, flamboyant, but flawed man became one of the most extraordinary human beings in all of history.  Walter Isaacson’s bestselling biography provides us a meticulously researched and highly compelling tome through which we can interact with this mercurial giant of intellect and talent and perhaps learn some of his lessons to apply in our own lives.
