Editorial Reviews

New York Review of Books

Wright has chosen passages that reveal Franklin's daily life and public career, his wit and wisdom, and Wright gives continuity to them with brief introductions and comments.
— Edmund S. Morgan

Christian Science Monitor

This book...allows one to become much better acquainted with the enduring Mr. Franklin. And that is a delight.
— Keith Henderson

Science

By judiciously selecting from [a] vast potpourri of materials, Wright has created a single, manageable work that functions as the penultimate introduction to Franklin in all his guises...Any person seeking to know Franklin the man, the scientist, the printer, and the patriot could not find a better introduction.
— Donald McGraw
