The penultimate book on the genius of Leonardo da Vinci, a true Renaissance thinker. Dr./Prof. Capra performs a masterful synthesis of the finest writings on Leonardo, and as only a great physicist can, Prof. Capra portrays his true scientific genius, and incredible, really incredible, farsightedness in all things science!
