In 1983, four self-described “knuckleheads” burst out of the mosh-pitted mosaic of the neo-punk rock scene in L.A. with their own unique brand of cosmic hardcore mayhem funk. Over twenty years later, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, against all odds, have become one of the most successful bands in the world.

Download Just Kids PDF eBook. Download the autobiography of Patti Smith, one of the most influential musicians, artists, and writers in popular culture.
It was the summer Coltrane died, the summer of love and riots, and the summer when a chance encounter in Brooklyn led two young people on a path of art, devotion, and initiation. Patti Smith would evolve as a poet and performer, and Robert Mapplethorpe would direct his highly provocative style toward photography. Bound in innocence and enthusiasm, they traversed the city from Coney Island to Forty-second Street, and eventually to the celebrated round table of Max’s Kansas City, where the Andy Warhol contingent held court… Just Kids begins as a love story and ends as an elegy. It serves as a salute to New York City during the late sixties and seventies and to its rich and poor, its hustlers and hellions. A true fable, it is a portrait of two young artists’ ascent, a prelude to fame.

Download Leonardo PDF eBook. Download the biography of Leonardo Da Vinci one of the most iconic and enigmatic person in art and science by Martin Kemp.
How can we best understand Leonardo? How did his mind work? Was he basically an artist who also pursued science and technology, or was “science” central to his artistic vision? In Leonardo, Martin Kemp offers a vivid portrait of the Renaissance giant that answers these questions and more. The book takes us on an absorbing journey through the life and work of Leonardo… More important, the author examines the ideas underlying Leonardo’s investigations of nature, illuminating his vision of the artist-engineer as matching nature itself in his creativity. Kemp argues that Leonardo’s apparent diversities reveal a desire to find an inner unity in the functioning of everything in the observable world.

Download Einstein: His Life and Universe PDF eBook. Download the biography of the most well-known scientist by Walter Isaacson.
Based on newly released personal letters of Einstein, this book explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk–a struggling father in a difficult marriage who couldn’t get a teaching job or a doctorate–became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos, the locksmith of the mysteries of the atom and the universe. His success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marveling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. This led him to embrace a morality and politics based on respect for free minds, free spirits, and free individuals… These traits are just as vital for this new century of globalization, in which our success will depend on our creativity, as they were for the beginning of the last century, when Einstein helped usher in the modern age.
