Publisher's Summary

Ben Franklin's own lively story of his early years is a unique, fascinating, and influential look at this American founding father. It has been taught in schools as a moral tract, as a guide to self-improvement, and as the Great American Success Story. It also is relished both for its insight into colonial life and the mind of the man who most affected the development of our democratic form of government. Finally, it is savored for its language; Franklin's wit, his well-turned phrase, and his humanity shine through.

A good insight into the character of the man

As one of the founding fathers, Franklin holds an important position in the history of the world, not just the United States. How the men of Franklin's era - many of them relatively young - thought the way they did, articulated those ideas and, most importantly, acted on them is inspirational.

The narration is particularly good - he really seems to capture the spirit of the man.
