It's really kind of misleading as a book of the notebooks of Leonardo. It's a really thick book filled with great text and information, but not too many images and they are small. There is a much larger and better book than this one, unless you like to read a lot of speculation about his work. The other book (same title) that has 14x11 prints and the book while being 300 pages; every page is a large print of one of his sketches!

Copious footnotes included within the text overwhelmed this work. I was hoping for the translated notes from Leonardo as he wrote them, with occasional drawings. No drawings are included, although they are described verbally. The notes have been sorted into an order the compiler thought meaningful, but I'd have been happier to see the random thoughts closer to the order Leonardo jotted them down, since to me that would also have provided a glimpse into his thinking patterns. I guess they've been sorted numerous times in the past and perhaps the original order isn't available anymore. Having not read other compilations, I can't say this version is better or worse, but I found it unsatisfying.

It seemed there were more footnotes and explanations within the text than actual notes from Leonardo. It was as though someone found an ancient religious text and instead of just presenting a translated version for personal interpretation, rearranged all the verses and then interjected explanatory notes between every phrase. Since the added notes in this work are in the same text type as Leonardo's words, it's almost impossible to read for his words alone. There is no Table of Contents and perhaps this is just not an ideal work for the eBook format.

While obviously, a tremendous amount of work went into this compilation and there is certainly value to a DaVinci scholar, for someone who just wants to get a flavor of his thoughts and perspectives in his own words, I found it too difficult a read to be rewarding.

Be careful when purchasing this volume as there are several versions out there that do not include the pictures and diagrams. You'll need to email the specific seller to ensure you are getting the right product. While this is a nice compilation it is not as easy to get into as Volume 1.

Bloat of a long winded perspective author that determines he knows what Leonardo meant when he wrote something contrary to the "experts" concept and belief.

Would be better to just have Leonardo's writings rather than the author's continued diatribe of discourse.

This book would be better titled "I Read Leaonardo's Notes and Know Everything He Meant, But Let's Just Listen to My Interpretations".

I like stories especially well written books that allow one's imagination to seek its own level and involvement in the presented story.

It is always a refreshing time to become immersed without the distraction of movie/cable/TV commercials, inappropriate sexual scenes, crude language and actions supported by annoying colors, disgusting switching between unrelated other themes, loud sounds and noise (?music?) to support extremely poor content, and people reading their lines.

I recommend this book for those who like to use their imagination.
godlike
I thought there would be some illustrations being a notebook from Da Vinci,but there wasn't.
I also thought it would be more interesting. Hard to get into.

Maybe it was because of the edition. It does seem that there are some losers in some of these editions.

Anyway, the book was free so no harm done. I guess a real Leonardo fan would enjoy it more than others.

Another book by the master of the genre. This gives details about some of Leonardo's greatest machines. I bumped this against some of the History Channels documentation, and you really do learn more from a book than television. For anyone studying mechanical engineering, this is a great thing to get used to reading. On my Kindle, it is a bit hard, but on a color iPad, with easier controls, it is easy. Read this and then go build some robots.
IM A BIG FOLLOWER OF DA'VINCI, SO THESE BOOKS ARE THE BEST FOR LEARNING ABOUT THE MIND OF A GENIUS! I AM HAPPY YOU CAN FIND A USED, BUT STILL IN PERFECT CONDITION COPY, FOR A AMAZING PRICE!
