《賈伯斯傳》作者最新力作 

比爾.蓋茲2018年夏季選書 

達文西傳記扛鼎之作 

歷史上最有創造力的天才達文西,他的人生、他的成就與他能教給我們的奧祕



《賈伯斯》、《愛因斯坦》與《富蘭克林》等暢銷傳記的作者華特.艾薩克森最新力作。生動地闡述史上最具創意的天才達文西成功的秘訣。

本書根據達文西數千頁的筆記與關於他生活與工作的最新發現,完成了這本結合達文西藝術與科學的傳記。透過本書,我們了解到,達文西的天分來自於可以不斷改進的技藝,藝術家熱情的好奇心、觀察力、以及幻想所喚起的想像力,也都可以發生在我們身上。

雖然達文西創作了史上最知名的兩幅畫:《最後的晚餐》與《蒙娜麗莎》,但其實他一心只想做個科學與技術之人,努力研究解剖學、化石、鳥類、心臟、飛行器、植物學、地質學與武器。他的《維特魯威人》素描,標識了他橫跨人文與科學的能力,使他成為史上最具創意的天才。

如同其他偉大的創意者,達文西的創意來自於廣泛的熱情。他將屍體的臉皮剝開,描繪扯動嘴唇的肌肉,然後畫出史上最難忘的微笑。他探索光學數學,展示光束如何打到角膜上,於是創作出《最後的晚餐》中在不同透視下的各種錯覺。作者還描述了達文西畢生對舞台製作的熱情,如何顯現在他的繪畫與發明當中。

達文西對各種事物的熱情,成為他創意的養分。此外,他與同時代的人有些許的格格不入:他是私生子、同志、素食者、左撇子、容易分心,有時候還是個異教徒。他的一生告訴我們,受教與提問同樣重要,要有想像力,並且要想的和別人不一樣。


“Majestic...Isaacson takes on another complex, giant figure and transforms him into someone we can recognize...Enthralling, masterful, and passionate.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“A monumental tribute to a titanic figure.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

He was history’s most creative genius. What secrets can he teach us?
The author of the acclaimed bestsellers Steve Jobs, Einstein, and Benjamin Franklin brings Leonardo da Vinci to life in this exciting new biography.

Based on thousands of pages from Leonardo’s astonishing notebooks and new discoveries about his life and work, Walter Isaacson weaves a narrative that connects his art to his science. He shows how Leonardo’s genius was based on skills we can improve in ourselves, such as passionate curiosity, careful observation, and an imagination so playful that it flirted with fantasy.

He produced the two most famous paintings in history, The Last Supper and the Mona Lisa. But in his own mind, he was just as much a man of science and technology. With a passion that sometimes became obsessive, he pursued innovative studies of anatomy, fossils, birds, the heart, flying machines, botany, geology, and weaponry. His ability to stand at the crossroads of the humanities and the sciences, made iconic by his drawing of Vitruvian Man, made him history’s most creative genius.

His creativity, like that of other great innovators, came from having wide-ranging passions. He peeled flesh off the faces of cadavers, drew the muscles that move the lips, and then painted history’s most memorable smile. He explored the math of optics, showed how light rays strike the cornea, and produced illusions of changing perspectives in The Last Supper. Isaacson also describes how Leonardo’s lifelong enthusiasm for staging theatrical productions informed his paintings and inventions.

Leonardo’s delight at combining diverse passions remains the ultimate recipe for creativity. So, too, does his ease at being a bit of a misfit: illegitimate, gay, vegetarian, left-handed, easily distracted, and at times heretical. His life should remind us of the importance of instilling, both in ourselves and our children, not just received knowledge but a willingness to question it—to be imaginative and, like talented misfits and rebels in any era, to think different.
