    Great History in "Cliff Notes" Fashion This was a nice, concise education on the life of Benjamin Franklin. I now know more than I did before about this great American. I have enjoyed several Hourly History short books. They give a lot of historical information in a book easily read in an hour. They are entertaining and educational.

    Reading about Benjamin Franklin's entire lifespan in this brief history gives the impression he led a charmed life, always learning and becoming more accomplished. Even when he found himself in dire straits, he continued to move forward while improving his standing among fellow countrymen, whichever country he chose to represent at the time. Always willing and eager to help others along the way, he surely was a role model for the ages.

    Thoroughly Enjoyed This Book! A Very good overview of the life and times of Benjamin Franklin. Understanding that Mr. Franklin was a very complex individual, this book does this highly interesting individual justice.

    “We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.” Benjamin Franklin Few men (or women) in American, or indeed world history, has been so respected and admired as Benjamin Franklin, impressing everyone, friend or foe, that ever had the privilege of making his acquaintance. His words of wisdom are simple and still hold true more than two centuries later. He is one of the few human beings that can be given the title of Renaissance Man. He has made his mark in politics, education, s “We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.” Benjamin Franklin Few men (or women) in American, or indeed world history, has been so respected and admired as Benjamin Franklin, impressing everyone, friend or foe, that ever had the privilege of making his acquaintance. His words of wisdom are simple and still hold true more than two centuries later. He is one of the few human beings that can be given the title of Renaissance Man. He has made his mark in politics, education, science, innovation, diplomacy, and philosophy. George Washington may rightfully hold the title Father of Our Country but Benjamin Franklin has the auspicious and propitious title of First American. Benjamin Franklin was born on January 6, 1706, as 12th child in the Franklin brood. He wasn’t born into wealth or society but had to use work and his natural wit to navigate the road to ultimate success. He was the fundamental self-taught, self-made man that didn’t choose the easy road over the much more difficult right road. After less than two years of formal education, Franklin begins on his long road to success and maturity. At the age of twelve, he was apprenticed, for seven years, to his half-brother, James, in the printing trade. Franklin, under the pseudonym of Silent Dogood, first appeared in his half-brother’s newspaper, The New England Courant. This was the Dear Abby of the times. If the only limit to a man’s success is his own ambition, it is no wonder Franklin not only walked with but impressed kings. I have read a fair number of the Hourly History publications and, without a doubt, this is the best. These high accolades aren’t particularly attributed to the writer but rather to the subject. Even today, Benjamin Franklin amazes and intrigues people in so many ways. His words of wisdom, first printed in his Poor Richard’s Almanack, in the Pennsylvania Gazette, which has form cornerstones in today’s society.

    Quick bio of Franklin, livelier than expected It took me about a half hour to read, and I actually learned something about Old Ben that I didn't know before, though I've read many bios & his autobiography. Much livelier than a cribbed-from-Wikipedia text than I was expecting, but the copy/paste editing was noticeable at the end with items in the "Conclusion" that were obviously not cleaned up before publication. That said, a nice intro of Franklin to newbies and even some lesser-covered details o Quick bio of Franklin, livelier than expected It took me about a half hour to read, and I actually learned something about Old Ben that I didn't know before, though I've read many bios & his autobiography.

    Wonderful little biography I have read several of these little hourly histories and I have enjoyed all of them. This is a very concise look at the life of a most remarkable man. It gives you a general understanding of how he shaped our world and how it shaped him. I found it very satisfying and at the same time it left me with a desire to know more about this amazing man. If you want a very quick but satisfying look at Benjamin Franklin, the man, and his accomplishments, then start here.

    I thought this short biography was quite good. I learned a lot about Benjamin Franklin, much more than I was taught in school. He was a writer, a printer, a diplomat, an inventor, a patriot, a father, a husband, and quite liberal for his time, considering his unusual common law marriage and his nurturing of both his legitimate and then later his grandson. In the end I feel I have a better picture of Benjamin Franklin and I am glad I read this book.

    Informative, Highly Readable, Concise I thoroughly enjoyed learning about Benjamin Franklin in this quick, easy to read book. I probably wouldn’t commit many hours to reading a long, wordy presentation of the material. This is a great format to learn about people and issues imports to everyone’s general knowledge.

    Easy read, decent content It was a fairly easy read that provided a brief overview over Franklin's life. I recommend his own short (140 pages) autobiography for anyone who found his life inspiring as he outlines his through processes and motivations between his actions more thoroughly and eloquently.

    I don't read many bios, but have always admired what I knew of Franklin. This book was written in a simple, easy and enjoyable to read style, and did have several facts about him that I hadn't been previously aware of.

    I was expecting so much from this book but it doesn't cover his life in detail. Ben Franklin was truly a gentlemen so much so that we see many invention and quotes misappropriated under his name which he never created or said.
