Review:
In 1728, when Benjamin Franklin wrote his own epitaph, he modestly decided he wanted to be remembered as "B. Franklin, Printer." Respecting his subject and his wishes, the author has written a straightforward account of Franklin's life with few flashbacks and digressions. Without glossing over Franklin's flaws and foibles, Adler reveals the accomplishments of this brilliant man who played such a significant role in the establishment of the United States. The prose is interesting and so compelling that it makes this excellent biography a page-turner.
