Famed for creating some of the most iconic images in European art – including Mona Lisa and The Last Supper – Leonardo da Vinci has influenced generations of artists and thinkers, and continues to do so after more than 500 years. While we cannot hope to emulate his achievements, da Vinci showed an attitude towards life from which we can all learn.A true polymath, he was also a sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer and an anatomist and, with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, da Vinci was never satisfied with what he had learned, frequently turning his mind to new, unexplored subjects. He saw links between art and science, and constantly pursued perfection and accuracy in his work, so that he developed many techniques we continue to use to this day. Combining these strengths with a unique imagination, da Vinci came up with designs for inventions centuries ahead of their time.In How to Think Like da Vinci, you too can learn to think like the Renaissance man, seize your opportunities, harness your talents, innovate and experiment and imagine the impossible.
