Surprisingly interesting, varied, and enjoyable approach. A little less speculation dressed as fact would have been appreciated. Great read. Recommended even for non-Leonardo admirers.

What did you love best about Leonardo's Brain?
I really enjoyed the details about Leonardo's life that are not commonly known. There is so much emphasis on so few parts of his life that it seems as if relatively little is known. The reality is that a great deal is known, and more is being learned with each passing day as new texts, drawings, and previously lost knowledge is rediscovered. That he touched on discoveries in his time that would not be "discovered" again for hundreds of years is truly amazing.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The discussion about Leonardo's incredible wealth of research and discovery, and the likelihood that this one man was the literal founder of so many sciences that other's are credited with.
Any additional comments?
I bought this book to listen to while I work on my own art and have found it to be both stimulating and informative.
