Given my fascination with Leonardo, I was eager to read Leonardo da Vinci, Walter Isaacson’s new biography. I’ve read a lot about Leonardo over the years, but I had never found one book that satisfactorily covered all the different facets of his life and work.      source

I read @WalterIsaacson’ biography on Steve Jobs a few years ago. Then I listened to his book on @doudna_lab. Simply brilliant. Thus had to listen to his book on Leonardo da Vinci. Fantastic. Now ordering his biographies on Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein. 🙏🙏🙏      source
I'm reading this book for the second time. For me, it's one of the best biographies written in the last few years.      source
