I enjoyed the reading and the material. The book really focuses (as the title suggests) on Franklin as the American, and how he shaped that definition. The book is pro-Franklin but still manages to discuss his faults/shortcomings. Looking forward to reading about Adams and the other "Founding Fathers". Franklin is directly responsible for much of the American identity -7
Once I got over the English accent ... this is a great book. Pretty techinical in its discussion without ever becoming a textbook. It is a well written book and I reccomend it highly.
