Re-reading Michael Gelb's wonderful book is like rediscovering a forgotten treasure. From the history of da Vinci's life, to an understanding how the seven qualities of his thinking can enhance our genius. I recommend this book to anyone who wishes to explore their creativity and enhance their mind and life.
there is no denying that da vinci was anabsolute genius and light years ahead of his time. his curiousity for everything allowed him to expand his own mind. this is a good book for self development and if you follow the exercises you will be able to implement the skills into your daily routines etc. the only real fault i have with this book is that he author sometmes goes off on one regarding how much of a 'special' person da vinci was - "he could bend horseshoes with his bare hands" - apart from that gripe i do reccomend this book...
This is a very readable book by a life coach with a clarity of thought that is very rare. Gelb's writing is engaging and fun to read. I think this book can change lives for any open minded 21st century reader. If you want to be a more informed and effective renaissance man or woman, buy this book.
