Description: During his lifetime, Leonardo da Vinci was recognized as a master artist. Few of his contemporaries suspected that he spent more time compiling a vast collection of scientific notebooks (over 13,000 pages). Fearful of theft and imitation, da Vinci jealously guarded his observations and discoveries. After his death, many were lost to the world for nearly 200 years. Others have surfaced only recently.

In this detailed yet accessible biography, White explores the influences that fueled da Vinci's scientific genius, proves that his groundbreaking discoveries predate those of many great figures like Galileo and Kepler, and illuminates how he used his scientific discoveries in his art.

Leonardo gives us the fullest possible portrait of the first true scientist.
