Format: Paperback
I bought this book because I checked it out from the library and liked it so much that I wanted a copy for my library. Excellent book. Ben Franklin was truly a amazing man. Even if you aren't interested in business like me, this book has so many lessons to be learned relating to all aspects of life that it is well worth it. I really think it is well written and I like the brief introductions that are given at the start of each chapter. Well organized too.

By Diane Law on May 28, 2012
Format: Hardcover
For an autobiography, this book deserves five stars. It is an interesting read and surprisingly funny at times. Franklin lived an extraordinary. His ability to read and understand literature opens all kinds of doors for him. He is able to pick up and start a new life in a new city or a new country with relative ease. He also develops a really interesting instruction manual for moral perfection. This might be a good gift for a father or grandfather.

Really enjoyed this autobiography, rekindled my love for history, found new inspiration to make more out of my day, especially after the paid work day is done, and to never stop learning.
