Franklin (The Thomas Fleming Library) Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

I do have to complain about the Kindle edition. The typography was terrible, there were grammatical and spelling issues that were not only distracting at times, but also confusing when dealing with facts in a biography. Not sure why the book publishers are not using the electronic documents that were used to print the books...we really need editors to review these before being sold to the paying public.
person and not all of these side stories that only had small or no effects on his decisions. Still you can learn quite a bit about Franklin but you have to get through a lot of cumbersome side stories to learn these things about him.
super intelligence. I was sorry when the book ended, it was a fascinating read about a fascinating man.
After I read this book I went online to further research Franklin. I will forever be looking for more facts about Ben Franklin.
