In this authoritative and engrossing full-scale biography, Walter Isaacson, bestselling author of Einstein and Steve Jobs, shows how the most fascinating of America's founders helped define our national character.

Benjamin Franklin is the founding father who winks at us, the one who seems made of flesh rather than marble. In a sweeping narrative that follows Franklinís life from Boston to Philadelphia to London and Paris and back, Walter Isaacson chronicles the adventures of the runaway apprentice who became, over the course of his eighty-four-year life, Americaís best writer, inventor, media baron, scientist, diplomat, and business strategist, as well as one of its most practical and ingenious political leaders. He explores the wit behind Poor Richardís Almanac and the wisdom behind the Declaration of Independence, the new nationís alliance with France, the treaty that ended the Revolution, and the compromises that created a near-perfect Constitution.

In this colorful and intimate narrative, Isaacson provides the full sweep of Franklinís amazing life, showing how he helped to forge the American national identity and why he has a particular resonance in the twenty-first century.

    This is a second hand review, but most important is the fact that this book was delivered, without any problem, to an inmate in county jail. He is a history buff and loved the book. If you or anyone you know is having difficulty with book delivery to a prison or jail, know that overstock uses UPS, and does not require a signature upon arrival. Hope this helps!
