Finished Leonardo da Vinci a biography by Walter Isaacson. Pretty interesting, although I think the author repeats himself a bit. Did learn some new thing about Leonardo. He was much more of a scientist than painter in some ways. Probably would have been credited with discoveries several hundred years ahead of there time if had the discipline to publish his work.

Just started Napoleon: A Life by Andrew Roberts. I know some of the highlights of his life, but also expect to be surprised.
