I learned lots of new things about this great man. The book was delightful to read. I greatly enjoyed doing so and would recommend to fans of the genre.
For those who don't have a lot of time or money to spend, this book provides everything you need to know--and it's easy to remember everything from the book.
Solid Read, very thorough.
This is a great read, with surprising information and insight into the life and mind of Benjamin Franklin. I expected a boring, lengthy essay about the major accomplishments of Franklin, as well as brief and way-too-simple overview of his personal life. What I got in return was something entirely different, with Kennedy going into great detail about Franklin's family, the power dynamic between Franklin and his older brother, and the ways in which society and neighbors viewed franklin at various stages of his life. It doesn't sugarcoat or otherwise gloss over the less-than-perfect portions of Franklin's character, nor does it serve to destroy the patriotic, founding-father image we have crafted for Franklin as a nation. This is definitely one of the more objective biographies I have read, and it seems to be the perfect length to truly elaborate on Franklin without droning on or going too deep, leaving the opportunity for further exploration if desired. The tone of the book is perfect for most ages, as it doesn't "dumb down the story", nor does use inaccessible language. I can see an inquisitive high-schooler reading this and enjoying it as well as a college graduate. The author has also written on Newton, Einstein, and Darwin, and I plan to pick up each of these titles for future reading,
I enjoyed the read, it isn't long, but packs a lot of information. Kids would like it, my teen read it, he enjoyed it as much as I did.
I was offered this book at a discount, in exchange for my unbias review. The discount has no impact on my review. Thank you
I received this product for free or at a discount in exchange for my honest review.
At one time most of the anecdotes related here would have been part of every primary school curriculum. I no longer assume that to be the case. Filling that void may justify the author's efforts
