    Award-winning author Philip Dray delves into the lesser-known side of an American icon in Stealing God's Thunder. Benjamin Franklin, more often viewed as a statesman and founding father than as a man of science, challenged religion, science, and reason with his inventions. But in a time when everything was blamed on sin, it was the lightning rod, Franklin's attempt to control the heavens, that caused the greatest controversy.

    David says: "Thought-provoking historical biography"
    "Boring"
    Overall

    I am a big fan of history books including long reads (Truman is one of my favorites at over 50 hours), but I was very disappointed at how this book dragged along. I must admit that I didn't even download the second part of this book and probably never will.
