Walter Isaacson

Walter Isaacson (born May 20, 1952) is an American writer and journalist. He is the President and CEO of the Aspen Institute, a nonpartisan educational and policy studies organization based in Washington, D.C., and University Professor of History at Tulane University. He has been the chairman and CEO of Cable News Network (CNN) and Managing Editor of Time. He has written biographies of Leonardo da Vinci, Steve Jobs, Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein, and Henry Kissinger.

Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci is an intimate examination of one of history’s greatest minds. Walter Isaacson’s sincere, humanizing account provides fuller context to Leonardo’s life: his humble origins, his growth as an artist and engineer, and the stories behind his masterpieces. Isaacson goes on to argue that more than simply admiring Leonardo’s qualities, we should strive to learn and emulate them. 

Benjamin Franklin: An American Life

“Well done is better than well said.” “You may delay, but time will not.” Ben Franklin is known for his witty homespun aphorisms and creative inventions, but there’s so much more to explore in the life of one of America’s most influential sons.
