I was looking for more.
Is this all that made Leonardo da Vinci different, a curiosity about life, a desire to learn more, asking great questions and keeping a note book full of reflections? The great questions included in one of the books exercises were to ask these questions: who, what, when, where and why. This book has some interesting facts about Leonardo but it doesn't really teach the reader how to think like him. It appears the author focused on his writing style and missed the mark connecting the title to the actual content of the work.

More self-help bromides
This book was a disappointment. The information about da Vinci's life was interesting. But by the mid-way point the book degrades into yet another litany of self-help and goal setting exercises. There's hundreds of book out there already recommending such exercises, and I doubt da Vinci actually spent his time with these endless and tedious tasks. In fact, if you follow the book's prescription you'd fill your entire day just doing mental exercises trying to become creative rather than actually doing creative things. There's nothing original or even very practical about this book.
