Small print is harder to read than the original copy I had but the cover presumably an authentic reproductioin in colour of the author's featrures, and it add to its charm..

He had an amazing Grasp of knowledge that mattered for his time of life. His idea of Men's get-to-gethers to talk about certain subjects and possibly some books of his time were a great benefit for society of the time. Which did help in the publishing of his paper and other avenues which presented themselves in the future.

Format: Audio Cassette
This is a autobiography of his early years. He actually finished the second half of it thirty years later when he claims he has enough time & before he became too old. The two halves have been edited seamlessly. In this we see just hints of what England's future relations with the colonies will be. Franklin has considerable business relations with the British military & makes his fortune in business by the time he is fifty. He is just getting his feet damp in politics being one of the framers of the Albany Plan of Union in 1754. There is much in this of the Franklin we do not know. It is informal & personal. With all its facinating anedotes it would have been lost to the world if he hadn't been urged to write it. America first true international super star, but by the end of this book, not yet.

I have read this book several times, and I consider it a must read. His outlook/approach on life was simply amazing and I was particularly impressed with his creation of the "Junto" and his code to live by. The audio version is also very good! Move from this to "The First American"... also enjoyable!

Format: Paperback
The greatest resource into understanding Benjamin Franklin, and perhaps one of the best sources for understanding the times of the Revolutionary period and the years preceding it. Due to Franklin's unique position in society in his time, we see the world of science, politics, and revolution from one of the key players in each of those areas.
His honest approach to his life can be somewhat unsettling, smashing our often idealistic ideas of this great American hero. But his honesty will be appreciated, as it colors the scene of his world and his contemporaries in hues that are unmatched by modern scholarly investigation.
