Publisher's Summary

Leonardo da Vinci was a gifted painter, talented musician, and dedicated scientist and inventor, designing flying machines, submarines, and even helicopters. Yet he had a hard time finishing things, a problem anyone can relate to. Only 13 paintings are known to be his; as for the illustrated encyclopedia he intended to create, all that he left were thousands of disorganized notebook pages.  Here is an accessible portrait of a fascinating man who lived at a fascinating time - Italy during the Renaissance.

One of the better "Who Was" books

The state to the facts and told the story without any bias. The content explained intimate details thoroughly while avoiding any agenda. Kids can read this unsupervised

Excellent and brief.

I really enjoy these books. Although made for kids, they get right to the point and hit all the key points. Highly recommend it!
