As a definitive work on Da Vinci this is a hugely impressive feat
It captures not just his life, but the essence of how he thought and his inquisitive nature that set him apart
This book has given me a much greater understanding for who he was, the multi disciplined creative vibe in Florence and Rome at the time - as well as - a deeper appreciation of art
It is a lengthy book and hard going at times
Do I think the essence could be distilled into something much much shorter - yes
You could trim 150 pages, lose nothing and end up with a more concentrated product
It’s a triple album that’s impressive in its grandeur and the amount of research that went in to it. Reading all his diaries etc
Did it leave a lasting impression - yes
Did I enjoy it - sometimes
Did I look forward to finishing it and find it a bit arduous at other times - yes :-)
This hardcover edition of the book is printed & produced in Italy - and in itself is a work of art. Superior production and print quality makes going through the book a pleasant experience. Many paintings, sketches and photographs are incorporated on the pages of this remarkable biography by an equally remarkable author.
A very highly recommended book to all the admirers and enthusiasts of Fine Arts & Science.
The book also gives account of his personal life. The real beauty of this book is all those color photographs of various renaissance era art like paintings and statues. The author also 'explains' these art works done by da Vinci and other contemporary artists. Isaacson also gives us context and background for each art work and tells us subtle nuances that differentiates that art work. Consider it as a quick and easy art appreciation course. The book is hard cover and printed on thick, good quality paper. In one of his interview the author tells us why he insisted on high quality printing. He said while writing book on Jobs they could not find many of his past emails written in 1990s. On the other hand Da Vinci has left some much of his writing behind and that is accessible even after 500 years because it is on the paper. He says he became believer in old technology like paper. I suggest the same to you. Do not buy kindle version. Buy paper copy for your collection. You will enjoy it more.
Anyway all these these color pictures on nice thick paper and their explanation by the author takes this book to different league altogether. This alone will ensure a permanent place for this book in your personal library.
I can strongly recommend this book to the students, artists, entrepreneurs, researchers, scientists and life long learners. They will get a lot out of this brilliant book. Parents should encourage their college going kids to read this book.
