    Wrapped this up last night. Didn't enjoy it as much as the other Robert Langdon stories.

    Meh. Too long (524 pages, probably could have been 400), maybe too in depth for the casual reader. Some of the technical information regarding art was tough for someone who isn't an artist and then he seems to repeatedly beat you over the head with the same information. My biggest problem, however, is that Isaacson constantly refers to other "geniuses" (of what Leonardo certainly was) like Einstein and Steve Jobs who, surprisingly, he's also written biographies about. It almost seems he's telling you the information because HE knows it, not necessarily because it was what Leonardo did. Read it if you like - you'll certainly learn something and you'll be fascinated by Leonardo's talent. But I'd encourage you to look around for something a bit more digestible.

    This one shows how most of these guys were nothing more than Criminals,Druggies and selfish people.

    It showed how Sanders has many race issues and was the most selfish player on the team.
