From the reviews:
"This book describes how to mechanize in Lego five designs by Leonardo da Vinci. The book starts with a short and engaging introduction to Leonardo da Vinci and his work, including pictures of the original drawings of some of his designs. … Overall, the book is clear and well written. … The step-by-step instructions for building the different designs are relatively easy to follow for people who are not novices with Lego parts." (M. Gini, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (12), December, 2008)
