"I grew convinc'd that truth, sincerity, and integrity in dealings between man and man were of the utmost importance to the felicity of life."

In this fascinating account of the life of one of America's greatest statesmen, Benjamin Franklin reveals his vast array of interests, including journalism, science, and politics. The book also describes this Founding Father's rise from humble beginnings in Philadelphia to his role at the center of international politics.

A famous polymath and inventor, Franklin was a major force in the American Enlightenment of the late 18th century. His learned contemplations on religion, philosophy, virtue, and society are as relevant today as they were during his own time.
