    Story

    These were real manly men. Articulate. Diplomatic. Driven. Adventurous. Underappreciated. Tireless. Intuitive (Half Nuts) – with the fork in the river. With a heartfelt sad ending. There is nothing like the real McCoy. Spielberg needs to make this movie!

    Story
    (146)

    In this colorful and intimate narrative, Isaacson provides the full sweep of Franklin's amazing life, from his days as a runaway printer to his triumphs as a statesman, scientist, and Founding Father. He chronicles Franklin's tumultuous relationship with his illegitimate son and grandson, his practical marriage, and his flirtations with the ladies of Paris. He also shows how Franklin helped to create the American character and why he has a particular resonance in the twenty-first century.

    Douglas says: "suffers from abridgement"
    "Inspiring! Suggest reading autobiography first."

    Story

    He may be the single most imporant person of modern history. He was truely a leader by example.

    Marxism>Lennonism>Communism there should be Franklinism - the Art of Diplomacy - rational thinking for the common good of Man

    He tried to immulate Socates and Jesus - yet apparently he was not religiously religious

    It is my ambition to try to immulate the virtures of Ben and the free spirit of John Lennon

    Named one of "The Hundred Most Influential Books Since the Second World War" by the Times Literary Supplement, and one of the "100 Best Nonfiction" books by the Modern Library, Thomas S. Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions is a landmark of scientific thought. Written in 1962, Kuhn's book took an entirely different view of how scientists perceived and achieved changes in basic theoretical assumptions - what he termed "paradigm shifts".

    I put it down 1 hour into it. Counterintuitive. I should have read all of the other reviews prior to purchase!
