Left unfinished at the time of his death, The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin has endured as one of the most well-known and influential autobiographies ever written. From his early years in Boston and Philadelphia to the publication of his Poor Richard's Almanac to the American Revolution and beyond, Franklin's autobiography is a fascinating, personal exploration into the life of America's most interesting founding father.

I am not a history buff. I do not idol famous figures. But still his is a story with amazing insights about ourselves that is still relevant to today. A genius and clearly a strong inspiration for "How to Make Friends and Influence people" written over 100 years after his death. A must buy!!!
Wish Old Ben had finished this!
I really enjoyed his micromanaging.
He was definitely OCD.
He was extremely disciplined and helped many people get a great start in life.
This autobiography was really in depth and you can mentally see what pointe in history he is walking through as his story is told. The only thing is the narration is a bit monotone and so you can easily zone out when listening and miss some parts.
would have liked to hear about his involvement of the formation of the United States and his interactions with other founding fathers.
Right now I have been enjoying biographies. Maybe if I learn about admirable people a little of their character will rub off.
This is the book that Davy Crockett took to his death bed. There is a reason for that. Once you finish the book you will be so impressed with the mind, frugality, tact, sociability, and wit of this man. He is a hero.
I have not.
I started a virtue journal.
