Top Customer Reviews
Priwer and Phillip's book is very informative, and anyone looking for research information about Da Vinci would likely consider this a Holy Grail with its factual yet interesting points. On an overall reading scale, however, for anyone simply looking for good read, this book would probably not suit as well (unless the reader has a terrible Leonardo fetish).
In the end, this book is great for someone more interested in facts rather than an interesting story line. Another strong point of the book is that it suits readers of all ages because of its easy to follow format. I would have to rate this book as a 3, don't be afraid to check it out, it's not bad!
Shana Priwer and Dr. Cynthia Phillips have done an outstanding job in the writing of this book. I found some of the chapter titles humorous ("The mamas and the papas....."). The book helped me see Leonardo da Vinci in a new "light", and I am looking forward to further reading/research on this genius. The book is small and easy to read; I found myself taking it with me wherever I went.
Leonardo da Vinci was truly a Renaissance Man. I liked that the writers took time to go into depth about the other great Renaissance Men (Michelangelo, Raphael, Botticelli) which I found very educational. The reading was an easy flow from beginning to end.
The style of writing was also inconsistent and often immature.
