LEONARDO'S BRAIN Understanding Da Vinci's Creative Genius

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Grover Gardner

History • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Along with his beautiful sonority, Grover Gardner’s artistry with pitch and tone variations makes this excellent book a melodic kaleidoscope of big ideas, fascinating biographical tidbits, and startling insights. And though this narrator’s talent with creative phrasing and subtle mood shifts is occasionally hard to ignore, it's a talent that always serves the author’s illuminating thought process. Da Vinci’s brain, with an unusually strong integration of the right brain’s visual and musical creativity and the left brain’s logical processing capabilities, may have given him remote viewing capacities that would explain the accuracy of his large-scale maps. Shlain’s forays into anthropology, the arts, and even quantum physics (Da Vinci may have been a time traveler!) make this a most engaging neuroscience book and a touching portrait of one of history’s creative giants.
