This book is amazing. I not only cracked up by the anecdotes, It finally put all the historic figures of that time in their places and made me comprehend how it all happened with Franklin and the US independance from England. Beautiful descriptions of the era.

Claude-Anne Lopez has given us a delightful and careful examination of a man too often classed as "quaint" and "lecherous". With subtle strokes, the portrait of Franklin the man-complex, the dreamer who builds, the lover who waits - emerges complete with vanity, pride, anxiousness, humility, generosity and fervor all intact.
Ms. Lopez's works (she has written many) are as important to understanding Dr. Franklin as is his own (as we call it) "Autobiography".
