Historian and biographer James Srodes tells Benjamin Franklin's incredible life story, making full use of the previously neglected Franklin papers to provide the most riveting account yet of the journalist, scientist, polilician, and unlikely adventurer. From London, Paris, Philadelphia to his numerous romantic liaisons, Franklin's life becomes a panorama of dramatic history.


Book News
A celebratory biography of Benjamin Franklin by journalist Srodes. While he discusses Franklin's accomplishments as a printer and a scientist, the focus of the work is on Franklin's accomplishments as a political organizer and, later, as a diplomat. Srodes is of the opinion that American democracy owes a major debt to Franklin and that the American Revolution could not have been won without him. Annotation c.
