The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin

Benjamin Franklin was called the “Father of all the Yankees” by Thomas Carlyle. Blessed with enormous talents and the energy and ambition to go with them, Franklin was a statesman, author, inventor, printer and Scientist. He helped draft the Declaration of Independence and later was involved in negotiating the peace treaty with Britain that ended the Revolutionary War. He also invented bifocals, a stove that is still manufactured, a water harmonica and the lightening rod.

Franklin’s extraordinary range of interests and accomplishments are brilliantly recorded in his Autobiography, considered one of the classics of the genre. Covering his life up to his pre-war stay in London as representative of the Pennysylvania Assembly, this charming self-portrait recalls Franklin’s boyhood , his determination to achieve high moral standards, his work as a printer, his experiments with electricity, his political career, his experiences during the French and India War and more. Related in an honest, open, unaffected style, this highly readable account offers a wonderfully intimate glimpse of the Founding Father sometimes called “the Wisest American”.
