Inspiring and humbling
I read Franklin's biography in college and had remembered only the part on self-development from the system he devised. I had decided to start reading more autobiographies and in perusing the first ones that came up under that word I picked this particular version. This book is easily 500 percent more enjoyable and compelling because of the incredible talents of the narrator, who truly channels Franklin in his own way and puts just the right amount of inflection and creativity into the words to make them come alive.
I would recommend this autobiography to anyone, especially those interested in the lives of people who have come from very little and made deep and broad impacts in their communities. Franklin is the epitome of curiosity, commitment to community, empiricism, integrity and pragmatism.
As is noted at the end of this autobiography, his character and works strongly molded the character of America during its founding. To understand his life is to understand the roots of the United States.
