I really enjoyed hearing some great things about an important Founding Father. I would have loved to hear more. More about experiences with the Revolution, experiments, role as an ambassador, patriot, etc. He gives just enough to make you more interested. I recommend reading autobiographies first before you read all the trash that has been written about the person in the last 10 years. I recommend the same with this.

The book is a very interesting look at Ben Franklin, although it is quite short. I would have liked to have had more of his writings included, such as his writings on virtues. The audio quality is poor and the book downloaded with 3 hours of some other book spliced into the end. I would try to find a Ben Franklin book that includes more of his writings if I had to do it again.

Really enjoyed this, very easy to listen to, like taking a journey back in time.
Ended a little abruptly though, would like to delve futher into another Franklin bio.
If you want to know more about B Franklin, read the wiki page. Although he did some great stuff around the way our societies work, his lack of modesty, blowing his own trumpet, did not do it for me. "i did this" and "I did that".
It put me off autobiographies at least for the next little bit.
