    Many consider Franklin the most fascinating American man who ever lived. A scientist, businessman, diplomat, author, inventor, philosopher and politician, he is America's original Renaissance man. His remarkable and varied accomplishments include the discovery of electricity and the modernization of the postal system. Brilliant and bawdy, a master statesman and a cultural icon, Franklin was so important and popular in his day that, according to the author, "... only Washington mattered as much."

    William says: "History tends to bore but I couldnt stop listening"
    "Benjamin Franklin a True Patriot"

    Any additional comments?

    This is an excellent book and will teach anyone how much our country owes to Ben Franklin. Besides being a scientist, military strategist, statesmen, he was a great Patriot and was loyal "as a shepherd" to our cousins across the pond until the decided they could not be reasonable with our taxation. If you enjoy history and learning about early america this book will give you an entire history!
