This is simply one of the most memorable "talks" I've ever had the good fortune to happen upon, and finally have gotten around to sharing it with you folks.

The talk was given at the Miami Dade Book Fair by Walter Isaacson in 2017. It was about the subject of his then most recent book, Leonardo da Vinci, and broadcast by CSPAN 2 during their weekend "Book TV" programming (CSPAN 2 devotes every weekend to the world of books).

I do hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
