Stands above other "Founding Father" books!
When I picked this up I expected a typical biography on one of America's founding fathers, but instead I was surprised to find a witty and probing look into the development of Benjamin Franklin as an American icon. This is the type of book that makes you question what you really learned in school and what the American revolution really meant. With a rash of "founding father" books having hit the market recently this is one that definatley stands above the others and you certainly don't have to be a history lover to enjoy this one.

just listened to the audio book on a long road trip. It was fascinating! How could I be 60+ and not be familiar with these facts, stories and myths? Read the earlier reviews - however I found the reader for the audio version to be easy to listen to, and now that I am home I am listening to the entire 10 hours again. If you enjoy history, this book is a must-read to challenge your knowledge and understanding of our Founding Fathers, Franklin in particular. Everyone on my holiday gift list will receive this book in 2014. Best and most memorable book i have read in recent years - worthy of all the awards received by the author!Was this review helpful?
