Toby Lester opens up a surprising window onto the artist and philosopher himself and the tumultuous intellectual and cultural transformations he bridged. With sparkling prose, Lester captures the brief but momentous time in the history of western thought when the Middle Ages gave way to the Renaissance, art and science and philosophy converged as one, and all seemed to hold out the promise that a single human mind, if properly harnessed, could grasp the nature of everything.

I was really taken with this audiobook: the narration is clear with proper but unobtrusive or excessive emphasis, and the tale itself ranges through a wide array of fields (the most interesting aspect of the work) neatly tying at all together by the end.

The book gives a detailed account of the life of Da Vinci. But it is written in a very tedious manner. Da Vinci was a genius but he had too many interests and he did not complete many of the projects that he started.
