Michael White, an experienced biographer, has written this brilliant portrayal of his childhood hero - Leonardo da Vinci - arguing that the scope of his investigations, experimental method, and desire to push the boundaries of knowledge made him nothing less than "The First Scientist." With this he weaves the history of early scientific endeavour, and Leonardo's colourful personal life, including his deprived childhood, homosexuality, and relationships with contemporaries such as Machiavelli and Borgia. A thought provoking book displaying the ultimate amalgamation between art and science.
