    Oct 17,  · Leonardo Da Vinci is my fifth book by Walter Issacson, and with Steve Jobs, by far my favourite one. I am no Leonardo specialist but after reading this book I have learned a great deal about this fascinating man. His modern approach to a years old story is one of a kind. Issacson is a delightful author/5(). Leonardo Da Vinci Review. Make no mistake, a Walter Isaacson book is a behemoth. Leonardo Da Vinci even has a version with lots of illustrations, which I can’t wait to dive into. But until you have time for that, spending 20 minutes to read the summary on Blinkist and looking up some of Da Vinci’s artwork on Wikipedia is a great way to get to know the man.

    Oct 12,  · In "Leonardo da Vinci," Isaacson's approach, true to his background, is fundamentally journalistic. No intellectual peacocking for him, and though his writing is certainly graceful, it is never. In the "luminous" (Daily Beast) Leonardo da Vinci, Isaacson describes how Leonardo's delight at combining diverse passions remains the ultimate recipe for creativity. So, too, does his ease at being a bit of a misfit: illegitimate, gay, vegetarian, left-handed, easily distracted, and at times heretical.
