"Patrick Cullen's narration [is] suitably smart, spirited, and gentle....There is inspiration here at every turn, and one is left feeling the tragedy of America is that Franklin didn't live to be 300 - at least. Highly recommended for all collections." ( Library Journal)
"The most comprehensive and the most intelligently sympathetic biography of Franklin we have." ( New York Times)

A Daunting Listen, But....
A daunting listen, but ... I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I warn you dear listener, if you ever wanted to know about the life and times THE most important American ( and dare I say European? ) before, during, and after the Revolutionary War, this is the book you should start your journey to understanding with.
But, the wealth of information is almost overwhelming ( at times, a bit tedious ), and at 35 hours, it's quite a challenge to fit into a working mans' schedule.
Despite that ( minor ) negative point, I found Patrick Cullen's narration pleasant and engaging.
Overall - if a true, comprehensive insight into the lives of the one, indisputably, most important men of the era, titled a "Founding Father", is what you seek, then THIS is the book ( and the man ) you should start with.
