By the international best-selling author of "The Science of Happiness" and "The Secret Pulse of Time", this is a fresh exploration of Da Vinci's real 'code'-science. Revered today as, perhaps, the greatest of Renaissance painters, Leonardo da Vinci was a scientist at heart. The artist who created the "Mona Lisa" also designed functioning robots and digital computers, constructed flying machines and built the first heart valve. His intuitive and ingenious approach-a new mode of thinking-linked highly diverse areas of inquiry in startling new ways, and ushered in a new era. In "Leonardo's Legacy", award-winning science journalist, Stefan Klein, sheds light on the mystery of the "Mona Lisa", takes us through the many facets of Leonardo's fascination with water, and explains the true significance of his dream of flying. It is a unique glimpse into the complex and brilliant mind of this inventor, scientist, and pioneer of a new world-a legacy we enjoy today.
