It is with great joy and gratitude that we announce the posthumous publishing of our father’s last book, Leonardo’s Brain: Understanding Da Vinci’s Creative Genius which he completed shortly before he passed five years ago. The book is available for pre-order now. We are hosting events in the following cities to celebrate the books release:

Leonardo’s Brain is not only one of his grand intellectual journeys akin to his books Art & Physics, The Alphabet vs The Goddess and Sex, Time and Power, but in many ways, represents a synthesis of so many of his ideas connecting neurology, history, philosophy, art, science, creativity and ourselves. He believed Da Vinci offered a glimpse of the future of our species.

Our father loved more than anything to share. As his children, we are honored to share this book with you. We hope to see you at one of the events in a city near you. If you have any thoughts or ideas on how we can get the word out, we would appreciate the support immensely.

Warmest Regards,

Tiffany Shlain
