His wisdom in his own words5 star

Largely a compendium of several incidents through out his life written as a means of passing on wisdom to his son.55

Every American should read this5 star

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.55

Ben Franklin5 star

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!55

Fascinating and very enlightening!5 star

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!55

Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin a bit short3 star

Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin falls short due to no mention of the Revolutionary war or Mr. Franklin's role in it. What gives?35

A man to learn and follow his spirit4 star

He to me is more than a man with a certain nationality. With a number of great virtues, he is the model of mankind.45
