I recently read Walter Isaacson's biography of Lenoardo Da Vinci. If you don't know Isaacson, he's the author of a number of interesting biographies, most notably the Steve Jobs biography that was released shortly after Jobs' death. I think the Da Vinci book is far better written - I suspect the Jobs bio was rushed to market before the editors had really finished their job - and there are several lessons I learned from Da Vinci.

One of the many things Leonardo da Vinci was famous for was writing his notes backwards. There's a lot of speculation about why he would do that but even without knowing, it's a neat little parlour trick that anyone can learn.
