Discusses and illustrates why three crucial aspects of Leonardo da Vinci's life -- his illegitimate birth, his left-handedness, and his homosexuality -- drove an ordinary man to make extraordinary contributions in art, science, engineering, design, and philosophy.

As one reviewer noted: "You have made me a believer (and so will) just about anyone else who reads what you have written..."
