Format: Paperback
I was recently given this book by a friend who tells me that her teenage children have enjoyed it immensely. I can see why. It has a relatively well written combination of facts and fun. (Of course, it errs by taking so much out of context in order to use a language teenagers can understand, but most of the readership is well aware of that.) I think that those who know something about Leonardo will find this funnier than those who've never studied him. Indeed, if you give this to a teenager, s/he may return with the question, "is that really true?!" and you can confirm what is contextual history and what isn't. So if you know a teenager who might like to know more about Leonardo and the late fifteenth century - or even if you don't - this book is worth a look, if only for a break from the seriousness of academia.

'Leonardo da Vinci and his Super-Brain'.

'Millions of people know Leonardo da Vinci as the Italian artist who painted the most famous painting in the world, the `Mona Lisa`. Millions more regard him as the light-years-ahead-of-his-time scientific genius, mathematician and engineer who dreamed up designs for helicopters, tanks, submarines and terrifically tidy toilets, hundreds of years before anyone else ever got round to creating the real things.
In this book you can find out all sorts of fantastic facts and stunning stories about the man who is generally thought to have been one of the brainiest and most creative people who've ever lived.'
