This is an important book. It is extrordinarily well researched and a departure from the boiler plate Franklin observations. Am I alone, as a fan of history, in wanting to hear the whole story? Don't people who take the time to listen to such a work want to hear it all? I find myself searching for an unabridged version on Amazon or Apple every time one of these abridgements is put up alone, with no sign there will be a full version to come.
This work deserves to be heard in its entirity.

For Christmas I recieved the print version, over 460 pages plus a huge bibliography, index, notes etc. The audio version is an excellent abridgment, providing plenty of the story without bogging down in details.
This is my second Benjamin Franklin bio (listen to his Autobiography as well). AGI relied upon lots of letters, even some which were un-sent, to re-construct Franklin's life in France.
I've already started listening a second time, as I usually do with books I feel are important and enlightening.
