I recently had a interesting chat with author of Becoming Leonardo, Mike Lankford. Lankford, who may be dyslexic himself. Mike became interested in the back story of Leonardo Da Vinci, a man who at one time was so backward he couldn’t properly learn Latin or Greek or hope to gain a conventional apprentice, but communicated predominantly through drawings.

Da Vinci was, in fact, a very late bloomer who would later be known as one of the greatest thinkers and artists of all time.

Mike’s story is not an academic text, but rather a personal piece that expresses his discoveries about Leonardo’s life.
