Who knew? I had no idea that Benjamin Franklin had such a contentious relationship with is son. Franklin stood on the side of American independence during the Revolution; his son was a loyalist to England. This book tells the tragic story of father and son. High recommended.

A Little Revenge: Benjamin Franklin And His Son is a really interesting book. I mean it. I didn’t even know that Benjamin Franklin had any children. This is the story of the relationship between Benjamin Franklin and his illegitimate son William. It is interesting to hear how Benjamin Franklin wanted his son to be a part of a political dynasty to rival the Adams, but this all went to hell in a handbasket when the American Revolution happened and William sided with England. Wow! What an amazing story. I highly recommend this book!

Anyone who thinks the Trump or Guiliani families have their problems need to read this account of the stormy yet unpublicized personal life of Ben Franklin. No doubt, the saga could have been told in probably half the number of pages. Still, it provides intriguing glimpses into the Franklin clan, the American Revolution, Colonial America and other events.

Informative but redundant. Slow moving. Could have done in half the number of pages.. If you are a student of Franklin, you may wish to read this.
