Customer Review

on February 13, 2001
Far from a "boring read", Franklin's work gives an unique insight into the 18th century working class people. Much that has been written about Franklin is absolute rubbish. His autobiography puts the man in real perspective. Granted he was a bit self centered and, at times, self congradulating, but his accomplishments were many. His wit is often stinging. I was surprised to read about his military activities and yet he was influenced by the Quakers. It's also significant that he talks of his belief in the deity and the fact that he was a presbetyrian. Many "revisionist historians" claim that Franklin was an atheist. This certainly suggests otherwise. Franklin will always be controversial, but never "dull". Another book to peruse is titled FART PROUDLY, also a Franklin work.
