Leonardo da Vinci
Comments and mentions from HN threads:
Ask HN: Any recommended books on developing mental models?
austenallred: Possibly not what you’re looking for, but the Leonardo Da Vinci biography by Isaacson has the clearest example of that I’ve ever seen. Leonardo’s methodology of learning is incredible and inspiring.
Ask HN: Books you read in 2018?
marrowgari: Fascinating look into the real life of Leonardo, demystifying the genius
formalsystem: I went into this book expecting to be blown away by how much smarter Da Vinci was than me. Instead I was blown away by how human and hard working he was and it taught me valuable lessons on how to structure my time and life to work on things I care about. This book was instrumental in my decision to quit my job
amuresan: Surprising how little of da Vinci's real personality is reflected in his modern image
