The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin...

1st published in 1793. The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin is the traditional name for the unfinished record of his own life written as letters to his son by Benjamin Franklin from 1771 to 1790...

Youngest Son of Josiah Franklin, Benjamin Franklin born on 1706 and spend his childhood days in Boston, worked as a apprentice under his own elder brother... where he got a chance to read books and eventually he became very fond of reading them. At age 17, He left to Philadelphia to work as a printer...

He started writing Articles to the Newspaper at very young age where he got numerous experience in writing articles... He became a member of political group and elected as a leader. He also shown interest in experiments and performed many....!!!! Yes he is a Inventor... The inventor of Franklin stove & Lightening rod..

He once appointed as a colonial Postmaster General in battle of Pennsylvania... and also represented AMERICA when he went to other countries. He is also one of the members who signed the declaration of Independence to United states, thus he became one of the founding fathers of AMERICA.

Benjamin Franklin is a Author, printer, political theorist, politician postmaster, scientist, inventor, humorist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat.

I Strongly recommend one to buy this book, and the following once...

* The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
* the Diary of a Young Girl - Anne Frank
* The Story of by Life - Hellen Keller
* The story of MY EXPERIMENTS WITH TRUTH - MK Gandhi
* Long walk to freedom - Nelson Mandela

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic, timeless autobiography
Reviewed in India on 26 May 2017
An amazing read, having been written by an extraordinary man but here's the caveat: Benjamin Franklin has used archaic English (the manuscript was prepared more than 200 years back); the expressions and phrases would baffle most readers so be prepared to struggle on that front when you order this book.

Although the font size, print quality and typesetting is satisfactory, I'm not happy with the binding of the book; last few pages of the book had to be separated with a blade, which is unfortunate, and the same pages were not bound properly, they were loose and i had to use a glue them back into the book.
