When you think of Leonardo, think of his drawing of the Vitruvian Man; the perfectly proportioned of a figure in a circle, within a square. This is Leonardo. As Isaacson so eloquently writes, the perfection of artistic endeavor through science was the artist’s true genius. Isaacson's biography is pitch perfect. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
