Book review on "Leonardo da Vinci" by Sherwin B. Nuland

Simple Book Review Advice
An academic book review needs to do three things, in approximately 1500 words:
1) Introduce the subject of the book and identify the book’s thesis in the first paragraph (this is the argument about the data--with a biography, for example, it might simply be that the artist’s work is shaped by life circumstances.
2) Summarize the book’s contents in the middle 2/3 of the review (around 800-1000 words, covering the entirety of the book’s data).
3) Conclude with an evaluation of the book, stating positive accomplishments of the book and suggestions for helpful information.
Simple Tips
1) Don’t say things like “the book’s too wordy”--all these books have gone through substantial editing and simply reflect the discursive conventions of their field.
2) Make a chapter-by-chapter outline as you read, making sure you note the basic data covered in each chapter and how it relates to the overall book.
3) Do not turn in a final draft full of spelling and grammar errors. This makes it seem like you have no idea what you’re talking about--no professor will take your work seriously.

Nuland divided his book into eight chapters. The first chapter chronicles the author’s journey searching to find the man that Leonard da Vinci really was and details the discrepancies in his known history. The author visited Vinci; the city reported to be the city of Leonardo’s birth and visited the ruin of his childhood home. Yet, it was not until later, while talking with some Italian friends that he found out that no one knows where Leonard was born. ...
