Would you listen to How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci again? Why?
I would likely not read this book again - however it is a great first time read.
After learning with this book I am finding the desire to be more creative through my own devices (which I feel is what Da Vinci would encourage). This book is great for developing your capacities for making connections and understanding creative thought. However like many texts and books - this is theory.
In order to integrate this new found knowledge you must practice it. That being said, if you want to think like Da Vinci (or better yet, your own creative genius), start creating. Read poetry. Watch a movie in a different language. Write a song. Live your creativity.
This book is a terrific stepping stone. Now put it into practice in a way that only you can.
What does Doug Ordunio bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I wish I had the paper copy. Much of the book is self reflection. Having the reflection prompts available at any moment is much more convenient for this type of book that is more interactive. There will be much starting and stopping while listening to this book.

I didn't like this book. I tried and I listened to the whole thing. it's his interpretation of how he wants to have you think.
The narration is good and the subject matter is interesting but I just don't think it works as an audio book. The reason? There are a number of exercises and assignments that you to complete as part of learning and becoming more creative. Not very practical if you are listening to this in the car!
That said the subject was interesting enough for me to go and buy a physical copy of the book. So in short as an accompaniment to a physical book and to reinforce concepts its great. As a newcomer to it then better off with a book.
