How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci

Author : Michael Gelb

Genre : Nonfiction

This is one of my favorite books about expanding thinking and learning abilities. Michael J. Gelb has helped thousands of people expand their minds to accomplish more than they ever thought possible, and shows you how. Drawing on Da Vinci’s notebooks, inventions, and legendary works of art, Gelb introduces Seven Da Vincian Principles—the essential elements of genius.

Step-by-step, through exercises and provocative lessons, you will harness the power—and awesome wonder—of your own genius, mastering such life-changing abilities as: an insatiably curious approach to life and an unrelenting quest for continuous learning, a commitment to test knowledge through experience, persistence, and a willingness to learn from mistakes, a continual refinement of the senses, especially sight, as the means to enliven experience, a willingness to embrace ambiguity, paradox, and uncertainty, the development of the balance between science and art, logic and imagination, the cultivation of grace, ambidexterity, fitness, and poise, and a recognition of and appreciation for the interconnectedness of all things.
