How to Think Like Leonardo Da Vinci – Michael J. Gleb

Good Luck to you!
There is no better book of knowledge ever written, or printed.
That being said, there are a multitude of books, for as we know learning, knowledge, and wisdom comes from many sources.
I will give you two web sites that have book list long enough for a life time of reading, but if I personally would recommend a few books, they would be the following:
Teenage Liberation Handbook;
For government, and other social teachings/opinion; and many may disagree with us on these; we use several books written by P.J. O’Rourke, depending on your sense of humor, and what side of the isle you are on politically we find these to be good reading.
Check Amazon, or Barnes & Noble, he has written several books.
Then there are several books by Edward Hays, three I personally like are The Ladder, (0-939516-46-2) Holy Fools & Mad Hatters, (0-939516-18-7) and The Ethiopian Tattoo Shop (0-939516-06-3).
All of these are written in a parable form but are very different in writing style. I recommend these for a teen who can read at a deeper level, and understand such.
A book for parents of teens that is pretty good is:
Homeschooling the Teen Years, by Cafi Cohen ISBN 0-7615-2093-7
As for a book that might help encourage success and learning, try “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens.”
After that “The Well Educated Mind” and all the books that book suggests.
