Publisher's Summary

Here's a personal growth guidebook that's won the admiration and recommendation of Ted Hughes, poet laureate of England. He calls this "a brilliant, practical guide to awakening and training our vast, unused resources of intelligence and ability".
Author Michael Gelb, founder of High Performance Learning and consultant for companies including AT&T and National Public Radio, says that we all can unlock the "da Vincian" genius inside us. Gelb says there are seven critical principles that need to be followed for success, whether you're learning a new language, studying to be a gourmet chef, or just hoping to be more effective on the job.

Creativity Is The Key To Everything You Desire.

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.
