Leonardo da Vinci: illegitimate, gay, vegetarian, left-handed, easily distracted, and at times heretical.

From the biographer of genius, Walter Isaacson, comes an unprecedented look at the life of one of history's most profound artists. Based on thousands of pages of Leonardo's notebooks, Isaacson explores the consequences of the great innovators discoveries and the fuel behind his insatiable curiosity for understanding the most complex mysteries of his time.

Pull back the shade on the first great disruptor. Join Isaacson as he tackles the godfather of genius and reveals the true stories behind the Western worlds most mysterious and revered works: The Last Supper, The Vitruvian Man, and The Mona Lisa.

Walter Isaacson, University Professor of History at Tulane, has been CEO of the Aspen Institute, chairman of CNN, and editor of Time magazine. He is the author of Leonardo da Vinci; The Innovators; Steve Jobs; Einstein: His Life and Universe; Benjamin Franklin: An American Life; and Kissinger: A Biography, and the coauthor of The Wise Men: Six Friends and the World They Made.
