Very, very interesting. Not a bio in the usual sense (almost no time spent on his scientific experiments; they were used more to explain his great fame), but an analysis of why he did what he
did, and why we see him the way we do. Utter genius, real self-made man, testament to moderation. Loved the British Empire, and his eventual enthusiasm for the Revolution had much to do with feeling mistreated by Britons of influence. Not a politician - poor instincts - but one who thought a few reasonable men could change the world. Fundamental conception of him as a worker, and proud of it, seems to have underpinned the North's rise, vs. Southern aristocratic slaveholders who didn't value work.

Excellent read for anyone mildly interested in our founding fathers. After living through the "American Fries" ridiculousness I was hooked!
