    • I bought it as a joke.
      Verified Purchase

      I must be honest, I bought this book as a joke. I watched a special about lottery winners once, and this guy that had spent thousands of dollars on tacky items and tacky art ...was sitting on his couch with his hair gelled back in a pony tail reading this. Like it made him look more intelligent. I wanted to look more intelligent too haha. Honestly though it is an interesting book, as Da Vinci is a very interesting man. Book arrived quickly and in perfect condition. If you are into da vinci/ self help with history I'd say get it. Plus you will look smart reading it.
