  • Renaissance Man

    By Timdoodles
    Where are all the modern day Ben Franks at? We sorely need them in our current government.
  • His wisdom in his own words

    By Business tivil
    Largely a compendium of several incidents through out his life written as a means of passing on wisdom to his son.
  • Life Changing

    By Brandstaff
    This is a gift to all Americans in quest to better themselves or in need of a standard to live by. This forefather lays the framework for becoming your best possible self.
  • Every American should read this

    By ajcrites
    A classic book that impart knowledge and wisdom from one of our founding fathers and the great polymath of history. Franklin is an excellent storyteller, and this book is both entertaining and elucidating. You will be surprised to discover facts about Franklin you thought you knew, but it isn't quite so. I found this book to be as inspiring as it was interesting. It doesn't need my endorsement, but I enjoyed it so much I'll give it anyway.
  • Ben Franklin

    By FishFiter
    This story is the first I've read of him, so I cannot make a relative comparison to others. However, I can say that "I" learned or at least had validated a great many truths of life. This by my own experiences throughout "My" life", having now entered the last quarter of life, was easy to relate too. If it were to have the same affect on a person in their first quarter of life, it would surely give that person a great advantage throughout the remainder of their life. It would be a great "Civics Lesson" in high school. To date, the best reading I've had!
  • Fascinating and very enlightening!

    By Geo21463
    Sometimes a little hard to read, due to the differences in language from that time period. But the most fascinating book I've read in a long time!
  • Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin a bit short

    By Able Baker Delta
    Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin falls short due to no mention of the Revolutionary war or Mr. Franklin's role in it. What gives?
