I have several publications of this wise man's quotes. One is held together with duck tape. Great source of inspiration to be a better person and live a full life. I open this digital edition every Monday morning first thing. Sets the tone for the rest of the week. A timeless, national treasure. As relevant as the day it was written.

Ben did a very clever job of putting his unique stamp on important truths. It took a couple of readings to ferret out the meanings of some homilies, but in the end it was well worth the trouble. I also found out where some of my parents quotes originated. Fun read.

Nothing to do with Franklin's fantastic work, but this book is AWFUL. There are so many typos that I felt I needed to look up an online text just to see what it actually said. Upon doing that I found that this book isn't even complete!! There are many more entries that are not included. This publishing is a joke and they should be frightfully embarassed. Spend the extra $ and get a good copy!

Simply a guide, left with us by one of our greatest founders. One would do well to use these for daily reminders.

This was less substantial than I thought it would be. The quotes or sayings are not categorized, but just in a pages long list without any sense of what they are for. You have to go through all of them to find the subject area you might be looking for. It diminished the usefulness of the list of sayings, and the whole book. Biography is rather superficial. Didn't cost much, but also didn't serve much of a purpose.

"With illustrations" is a joke. A few postage-stamp size pics compiled in one illustration on the last page. I'm sure they are all available on a first page image search for Benjamin Franklin. Other than that, just the text which *still* has some worthwhile proverbs.

Good research book about Franklin but for older kids. Letters are smaller than we used to see in my sons books. He is in 3rd grade.
Book is not very thick but has all important information about Benjamin, his family and his inventions.

I didn't buy this for myself, I got it for my girlfriends Mom. Her comment was it was pretty thin, but apparently she loved it because she didn't mention anything else and was happy with the purchase.
