Insights into the genius of Da Vinci in precise and elegant prose crowd every page. I went to the brick and mortar store to see the hardcover edition before purchase, since I read most often in digital format. One really needs the hard cover edition. Based solidly on Da Vinci's notebooks, the artwork and drawings from the notebook as well as depictions of paintings are essential to enjoyment of the book. I found myself going back to them as I read comparisons of perspective, technique and the copies to further my understanding. The obsessiveness of the gifted shines through every page, whether the topic is Da Vinci's study of water, plants, engineering, or revelations of his personal life. Isaacson did a magnificent and masterful telling in this book. I was enthralled. I am a retired high school world history teacher. This would have been a summer reading recommendation for my incoming honors class, and it will be on my gift list for a couple of my colleagues.
