Greatest science e-book ever created

Over at science e-book review ‘Download the Universe’, Carl Zimmer says he’s found the greatest science e-book yet created — and he just may be right. The book is Leonardo da Vinci Anatomy, and it’s an iPad app that explores a collection of Leonardo’s anatomy drawings (many of which were hidden from the public until the twentieth century) and explains the magnitude of the artist’s contribution to science. Though Leonardo sometimes misinterpreted what he discovered, he nevertheless produced some of the most accurate anatomical studies of human musculature and organs ever seen before in the West.
