Esmond Wright “Benjamin Franklin. His life as he wrote it”.

Esmond Wright, Professor of History, gives us a good look into the life of Franklin. We see him as a printer, author, businessman, philosopher, politician, diplomat, scientist and a patriot who was a major force in winning his country's independence and securing its life in the Constitution. Born poor in Boston, he died wealthy and esteemed. This book portrays Franklin, "the most modern-minded" of the Founding Fathers, as a cool, charming, stylish, inquisitive figure.
This book was enlightening. I recommend it.
