Professional reviews

"Doug Ordunio gives an accessible and sage performance as he recounts Gelb's strategies for developing a Renaissance mind to reach one's full potential. Based on his admiration for da Vinci, Gelb advocates seven skills, ranging from fostering curiosity and embracing change to developing balance and refining one's senses. He offers concrete suggestions and activities to foster each skill, and provides life-changing yet practical advice for accomplishing more. Ordunio celebrates Gelb's appreciation of da Vinci in his reading. Because the book is designed to be a training course, the audio version is best listened to periodically, rather than all at once. Listeners will find that Ordunio's calm, relaxed delivery makes significant human growth seem easily obtainable. H.L.S. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
