Da Vinci

Radiolab’s Robert Krulwich dipped into the mind of Leonardo and his to-do list, based on Toby Lester’s book, Da Vinci’s Ghost:  Genius, Obsession, and How Leonardo Created the World in His Own Image, which comes out today.

According to Lester, Leonardo travelled with a small notebook at the ready to take notes, sketch, jot down a to-do about getting a vitolone.

As Leonardo wrote, ”It is useful to constantly observe, note, and consider.”
