Ben thru 1757

Enjoyable rendering, giving some feel in a surprisingly easy to listen style. Unfortunately, the account ends in 1757 with his arrival in England.

Inspirational

Franklin's autobiography is fascinating in many ways. It gives true insight into how he thought, as well as interesting tidbits about life in the 18th century American colonies. His methodical, analytical, yet practical approach to a well-rounded life could well be used as the source for the ultimate self-help book.

Also, the book is read so well by the narrator that you'll forget that it's not actually Franklin himself doing the reading. You will have to pay attention, though, due to the use of 18th century words and idioms, but it is worth it.
