Ben Franklin, one of my top five founding fathers. He is a smart guy, if I could be more like him I would definitely be more successful.

Great Read! Was assigned this book in my Honors class, and loved it! It started out slow, but became quite interesting quickly. Must read for those who want to know where our country came from.

A unique insight into the life of a great American. He wrote it for his son's guidance ( it did not work).

I know he wrote this book about himself, but instead of coming away with an understanding of his influence on the colonies, I just got a clear picture of what an egotistical slut he was.

He had seventeen children, mentions only three in the book, and just one of them by name. I can't fathom a father writing an autobiography without including his children. But then again, maybe they weren't a part of his life that mattered.
