    Having read many Hourly History books, I had an idea what to expect. However, this book on da Vinci differs from the rest. Judging from the writing style, “Leonardo da Vinci, A Life From Beginning to End” appears to have been written for a younger audience, perhaps junior high age. As such, it is a good introduction to da Vinci for young readers who don’t know many of Leonardo’s accomplishments past the Mona Lisa. Other readers who are somewhat familiar with da Vinci may find this book lacking. In Having read many Hourly History books, I had an idea what to expect.

I would have preferred the ruminations over da Vinci’s sex life would have been left out, thus permitting additional information concerning some of his ideas and inventions. There is much that is not included (such as some of the inventions he imagined which didn’t come to fruition until centuries later). The author did include an extensive history of da Vinci’s early life and his accomplishments as an artist. Chapter Nine (Facts about Leonardo da Vinci) was interesting, a potpourri of information. This was my favorite part of the book, although I wish it would have been longer than two pages. Bottom line: Great book for those who know little about da Vinci, but not enough meat for people who have knowledge of the many accomplishments this man fit into his lifetime. Three-and-a-half stars.

    Everyone knows Leonardo da Vinci as the painter of The Last Supper and that placid woman with the mystical half smile. The Mona Lisa. Few, however, know about the man. Born on April 15, 1452, as the bastard son of Piero Fruosino di Antonio da Vinci, a wealthy local patron, Leonardo di ser Piero could, fortunately, profit from his paternal heritage.

Few, however, know about the man. Born on April 15, 1452, as the bastard son of Piero Fruosino di Antonio da Vinci, a wealthy local patron, Leonardo di ser Piero could, fortunately, profit from his paternal heritage. Although his formal education was sparse, he had a natural curiosity grew continually throughout his life. Being left-handed, he wrote almost everything in mirror-image writing (from right to left) and continued this for the rest of his life. Drawing and painting are what he is best known for but that is just the visible tip of the iceberg of his talents. He served as an inspiration to artists of his time and had a lasting influence on their works and art development over the next five hundred years. In comparison to his contemporaries, Raphael and Michelangelo, he created few paintings and many of those have been lost through time and war. The few works remaining are considered by many art critics as the best paintings ever made. This said it must also be noted that many of his paintings were never finished. In comparison to many of the great artists on the nineteenth century, who often completed a masterpiece in a day, da Vinci sometimes spent years before his work achieved his stringent standards. Leonardo is the original “Renaissance Man.” He was also known as “The Vitruvian Man, due to his multi-interests and talents. He was interested in literally everything. He mastered mechanical and civil engineering, optic research, physics, hydrodynamics, chemistry, pyrotechnics, zoology, botany, geology, physiology, and geometry. In other words, his interests were so numerous and diverse, he just didn’t have the time to paint. His paintings may be the best in the world, but his greatest genius and contribution to mankind are found in his notebooks. I can only conclude that to know him is to love him. This short biography is just a glimpse of greatness. I always pictured him as an old man with a long gray beard. Now I see him as more, much more. He was a man of unbelievable vision and by reading this book to its conclusion, I would be surprised if a flame isn’t sparked by your imagination and the desire to learn more burns in your soul.

    Story of a multi-faceted personality like Leonardo Da Vinci cannot possibly be described in as few pages as has been done by Hourly History. Yet again, the author brings forth all the dimensions of this icon of the Renaissance in all its glory.

    Leonardo da Vinci is one of the most intriguing people in history. I've always been fascinated with his life. So it's no surprise that I ended up really enjoying this short book. I even learned a few more things about him that I didn't know. I loved that. My favorite chapters were 'Early Beginnings and the Italian Renaissance' and 'Facts about Leonardo da Vinci.'

    A very short work to capture all there could be to know about Maestro, but enlightening nonetheless. Maybe it's due to the lack of knowledge about the man, except for writings from Vassari and his own sketchbooks. The most wonderful part of da Vinci's personality is his inability to see art and science differently. Being good at science, especially human anatomy made him a great artist, someone capable to paint The Vitruvian Man.

Being a great artist helped him with the knowledge of proportions to build scientific machines, including the flying machine that could be propelled by turning a rotor by hands. It might have worked, it might not have, but he dreamt ahead. He is not only the father of tens of science fields, he marks the beginning of and represented what came to be the Italian Renaissance, pulling Europe out of the Middle Ages and the Great Plague.

    A brief biography that can be easily read in one sitting. It provides an overview of the intense life of Da Vinci, whose studies cover so many different fields (sculpture, painting, architecture, engineering, music, anatomy, etc). I would suggest to everyone who doesn't know much about this masterful artist to read it, especially before visiting Italy.

    This is a very short book maybe 3 hours max. It's small brief about each part of his life and how his environment molds him to be a Genius that he was. Most people know him for his paintings like Mona Lisa and The Last Supper but a little-known fact is that he had masterful knowledge in the fields of optics, physics, hydrodynamics, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, chemistry, zoology and etc. There's even a bridge made based on architecture designed by Leonardo.

Well, my interest arose from Da Vinci's Demons and of course Ancient Aliens (I will recommend anyone to watch none of them). I am still confused about Leonardo's SO and also gender preference. Well if you are still reading my review and interested in reading this book and also want something to look forward to then read this Leonardo already knew why the color of the sky is blue but back in time people weren't able to comprehend what he was trying to explain, let's see if you can :) P.S its self-help for me because I thought subjects not related to a chosen field of learning are useless but I was wrong. ( still think they are useless )

    Don't expect much. This reads like a high school senior year history paper...And that's probably an insult to seniors. It does include a synopsis of Leonardo's life, but don't expect any ground breaking commentary. Even so, the greatest weakness is not in the content but in the quality of the writing. This is a great speed read, and a perfect reference book for middle school students, but not substantive enough to keep an advanced reader occupied for long!

    Great book! I have read about Leonardo Da Vinci, but this book tells more than any other. The book gives the glimpse of life during Italian Renaissance era. The best thing about 'hour history series' is that it is totally based on facts (not opinions) & is short enough to complete in a sitting :) I am glad that the author talked about the paintings Da Vinci did, and the description is quite remarkable.

Briefly yet vividly described paintings in this book are The last supper Monalisa The Vitruvian Man (my favorite) Da Vinci was a genius! I don't think the world ever saw a polymath like Vinci. The world didn't get to know about Vinci's scientific work as it wasn't written in latin. (at that time scientists used to use latin for such works) Now we know from decoding his 4 diaries that he knew things like: why the sky is blue Valley's are carved by mountains Sea level can fall to reveal mountains Da Vinci made remarkable scientific sketches, He was a true visionary, some of the sketches the book tells about are: A bridge : da Vinci made a bridge for a king but the king declined arguing that the bridge sketch is absurd. In 2002, Architecture tested the bridge design as sketched by Da Vinci & it worked! Diving suit : The suit have been created from the sketch & it worked well Parachute Paraglider Contact lenses & interestingly He was a firm believer that Earth is older than what the bible says! (In those days, saying a thing against bible used to mean treason) At the end, we all should thank "Giorgio Vasari", whatever we know today about lives of great artists of Italian Renaissance like Leonardo or Michelangelo is due to him. He spent his life documenting the life of others! My Favourite Quotes of Da Vinci: "you have no dominion greater or lesser than over yourself" "Learning never exhausts the mind." "The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding."

His thoughts, works, designs have not be able to be deciphered by today’s generation who has the liberty of high tech machines.

An eternal mystery, Leonardo Da Vinci proved to us that you could very well be a master of all trades and not a mere jack. The current society thrives on specialization. However, had Leonardo invested all his life in painting, he would not have been able to do justice to his own creativity. Sadly though that so much of his work has been lost into oblivion. His scribbles have the power to create history. The book beautifully sums up how deep can the quests for innovation run within a human soul. You cannot afford to put it down once you start. The author has penned down short but well-knit, informative chapters. He has listed few of his innovations that are unknown to many. While reading up, I could not ignore one of his sayings which am sure would relate to everyone – ‘I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do’.

    Original Review posted at CymruBoyo Books There are few people in the history of the world who evoke as much curiosity and wonder as Leonardo Da Vinci. This book serves as a combination of mini-biography and highlights reel of his career. However there is little here that you won't already know if you've read about him before. In addition, some of the writing is of a low quality (I wonder if English is the authors first language?) and certain items are written about out of order chronologically.

Favourite Quotes: “I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.” -Leonardo Da Vinci “there is something supernatural in the accumulation in one individual of so much beauty, grace and might.” -Vasari In summary this book is well worth a read as an introduction to Da Vinci just to learn some quick facts and it's so short (and FREE) that it can't be considered a waste of time but is by no means definitive. 3/5

    Leonardo was a true genius that never abandoned his true human insight of the soul. Gentle, humane, and caring with respect all of his subjects. Yes he was extremely fortunate to learn from the best artists of the time. But he was far beyond what we consider a "naturalist, or talented". He was driven by his integrity, or spirit to delve deep beyond what the eye could see! I find his life amazing! He had an endless drive of knowledge and his degree of adversity of subject matter overwhelming. How Leonardo was a true genius that never abandoned his true human insight of the soul.

    Leonardo da Vinci was a polymath, which is something that resonated with me. He emphasised on proportion, perspective and anatomy, which is evident in his artistic works. As a reader, I enjoyed learning about how he viewed art and other subjects. He saw art, science, math and engineering as inter connected subjects which is what makes him a well informed person, a testimony of an intellectual mind. I am looking forward to read more about his life & work through the eyes of Walter Isaacson.

    "Learning never exhausts the mind." "I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do." That's Da Vinci alright, one of the greatest minds in human history. I'm not sure how this book ended up on my kindle but reading it made for a delightful hour. It's short. It's sweet. It does a damn good job at packing Leonardo Da Vinci's epic life in a short book you can read in less than an hour. Maybe two if you're a slow reader. "Learning never exhausts the mind."

    A well written biography with a lot of insight into the life of one of the most revolutionary personalities that existed during the renaissance period. This is a short read that is concise and crisp. The only drawback was that the information presented wasnt placed in the right order and that added a little ambiguity to the book. If you have a few minutes to spare and would like to learn something about history then please give this book a shot.

    Leonardo da Vinci: A Life From Beginning to End; This Hourly History edition is a concise and an extremely brief account of the great visionary. This book might look a little informative for people having been acquainted with Vinci only to the level of Monalisa or the Vitruvian man. However, for people having more that an amateurish interest on this man; both his life and work, this book will definitely prove be drab.

    Brief and precise. Considering that the book is totally free, it was a very good read, all the facts and stories were arranged chronologically which made the book very easy and comfortable to read. I completed the book in one sitting, it took me about 30 minutes to completely read the book. I rated it one star less because the author could have provided the pictures of the paintings and locations he mentioned in the book, this would have made it a more interactive read.

    This is a good read to know about Laonardo. He is mostly known for Monalisa only and many of his genius ideas and works are not known. In my views he didnt get the credit he deserve for his works. A good effort to put information on his life. It would have been wonderful if pictures were also added to relate to the information provided.

    My biggest complaint about this book is that it portrays da Vinci as known only as a painter, despite a wide variety of accomplishments. However, due to his depictions in popular culture, I’ve always thought of him as an inventor first, who also painted masterfully. That said, this book is informative. I have both broadened and deepened my knowledge by reading it.

    Hourly History books are great! Before our three week trip to Europe this summer, I discovered and read at least ten of these books. They are super helpful as a crash course or review course in some of the historical facts you wish you could remember. Quick reads and laid out in a way to stay fresh on your mind.

    Possibly one of the smartest people to have ever walked on this surface of the planet earth. The biggest lesson one could carry from his life is that always be curious. Observe,note,jot down,think,ponder, ask,deliberate, do anything but say oh this is normal. Hourly history brilliantly compresses the life of the legend in the provided space.
