An absoultely fascinating read about Franklin. This book portrays him to be highly intelligent, innovative, an inventor, a great scientist, a savvy businessman, articulate, witty, vindictive, and a social butterfly with royalty, persons of influence and females in particular. I very much enjoyed this book and the detailed description of the time, Franklin himself, others (such as John Adams), and how the world perceived Franklin as a great man and mind.

This is a wonderful, readable biography of the man-of-the-people who shaped the US constitution at the age of 80+. We owe more to Ben Franklin than any of the other Founding Fathers. This book will show you why.
