Publisher's Summary

Considered to be one of the best autobiographies written in colonial America, Franklin portrays a fascinating picture of life in pre-revolutionary Philadelphia. In his own words he describes his life as a printer, inventor, scientist, and politician.

Love the man, dislike this audiobook

Absolutely terrible audio and very dry reading of a great man's account.

Instead, I highly recommend "Benjamin Franklin: An American Life" by Walter Isaacson.

Bad audio

The audio was a recoding of a 1992 reading. I couldn't get passed the first 5 minutes.
