Abstract:

Genius is made, not born. And human beings are gifted with an almost unlimited potential for learning and creativity. Now you can uncover your own hidden abilities, sharpen your senses, and liberate your unique intelligence-by following the example of the greatest genius of all time, Leonardo da Vinci. Acclaimed author Michael J. Gelb, who has helped thousands of people expand their minds to accomplish more than they ever thought possible, shows you how. Drawing on Da Vinci's notebooks, inventions, and legendary works of art, Gelb introduces Seven Da Vincian Principles-the essential elements of genius-from curiosita, the insatiably curious approach to life to connessione, the appreciation for the interconnectedness of all things. With Da Vinci as your inspiration, you will discover an exhilarating new way of thinking. And step-by-step, through exercises and provocative lessons, you will harness the power-and awesome wonder-of your own genius, mastering such life-changing abilities as: Problem solving; Creative thinking; Self-expression; Enjoying the world around you; Goal setting and life balance; Harmonizing body and mind. This author illustrates the seven fundamental elements of DaVinci's thought process.
