"The most readable full-length Franklin biography available." (The Washington Post Book World)

"A thoroughly researched, crisply written, convincingly argued chronicle." (The New York Times Book Review)

Excellent book. 13. April 2007
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a fine selection from Franklin's writings, including the entire 'Autobiography'. All texts have been judiciously chosen by the editor, arranged in chronological order and prefaced by intelligent, concise and well written introductory notes. Franklin's importance and permanence clearly emerge from the reading.

I only wish there were more excerpts from Franklin's delightful 'Poor Richard's Almanac'. The selections presented in this edition come from the Almanacs for the years 1733, 1734, 1736, 1737, 1738 and 1739, and they barely fill 15 pages. Nonetheless they might well satisfy the reader and in any event there is plenty of rarely published letters and articles from the Pennsylvania Gazette to make up for the possible lack of material from the almanacs signed by 'Richard Saunders'.

This is the perfect book to discover Franklin and also a very good one for those who already know him, thanks to the editors insightful notes and to the opportunity to review Franklin's writings in chronological order, from a historical and biographical perspective.

The Original Diplomat 25. Mai 2006
Von James H. McDuffie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a great collection of the writings of Benjamin Franklin. For me, the real value here lies not so much in the fact that he was a self-made man, but in the advice he gave about connecting with people and interacting with others both from a business and from a personal point of view. His ability in that area led directly to his success (along with some luck). I wish more people read the Autobiography and other papers just for that reason alone. In the long run, that may be the greatest contribution made by Ben Franklin.

Words From a True Saint 10. Dezember 2013
Von KingSonal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I didn't know much about Franklin besides some basic facts prior to reading this book. I enjoyed it tremendously. I appreciate so much the time the author spent in researching, choosing and setting up each of the items included. Though I didn't always agree with his characterization of Franklin's mindset, the context was very helpful.

From this book you get a real idea of who this great man was. Such a humble, kind, intelligent, virtuous, and benevolent person is rare to find in public life. I am immensely thankful to live in the country that he helped to form. The innocent nature in which he went about things, the number of things he invented, and the self-deprecating humor employed make him very endearing. I look forward to reading this book again and again.
Best Ben Franklin Book 17. Dezember 2009
Von TheClap - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
...actually I can't say it's the best, but I can say I did a significant amount of searching for the perfect compilation of Ben Franklin writings to add to my library. This book (speaking of the hardback) is very nice. The binding is nice and tight. The dust jacked is made of very high quality paper, it almost feels like it's some sort of polyester. It's a nice book... aesthetically.

Inside it has a number of Franklin's writings; stuff he published in his newspapers, essays, letters, and of course it has his autobiography at the end. That's the part that I actually read. The autobiography is excellent. It gives you a real flavor for the kind of life that we all can live. Read it, enjoy it, learn from it, and then put it away for a few years and then read it again.

Buy the hardback if you love books not only for their words but... just because you love having nice books.
great book for Franklin lovers 10. Januar 2014
Von Katherine Foster - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Benjamin Franklin is just about my number one favorite historical figure, and Walter Isaacson is a favorite as well. I gave the book to my son, a history teacher, after only reading a little of it. He, however, loves it, and has found it to be a very good resource for his teaching.
