How could one man manage so many varied accomplishments? Why hasn't there been movies and mini series done with such rich material.

This is an erudite autobiography that most modern people would find quite intriguing aboutthe life and times of one of the greatest statesmen and inventors tp have molded the united states. Ben Franklin was not short on witticisms and this book roved amusing, thoughtful, and informative. What I appreciate the most is how your app has transformed my work day and commute!

A masterpiece of literature. Being a canadian i had little knowledge of the story of this hero of free thinking. What a pleasurable book that gives insights into the mind of one of the great thinkers ahead of his time.

It's like reading a good self-help book and learning about American history at the same time.

The reader clearly does not understand the content which makes it hard to listen to. I couldn't finish listening but will read it in my kindle.

Content is very interesting but the reading style is like a five year old. I could not finish the audio version but will go back and read the print version.

The book itself was not quite what I was expecting. B F wrote little of the things I thought I knew about him and much more about what I knew nothing about. However it was still insightful and helped me get to know him rather than about him. It was well read by a non professional.

Benjamin Franklin's autobiography is incredible. However the digital cover is from the book "The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons" which is Pl Ed upside down. Perhaps a volunteer could fix that to suit my sense of equanimity.
