Leonardo da Vinci created 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 engineering. 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. Walter Isaacson brings Leonardo da Vinci to life, showing why people have much to learn from him. His combination of science, art, technology, and imagination remains an enduring recipe for creativity.

Major kudos to the reader whose narration is distinguished by consistently proper pronunciation of non-English words and names !
In my experience with audiobooks, this is extremely rare.
The sole exception being his mispronounciaton of the Italian city of Pavia in which the second syllable is supposed to be stressed rather than the first.

As of this writing, April, 2018, there are major skips on two tracks of disc one .
