Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.' - Benjamin Franklin
Best known for being one of the founding fathers of the United States of America, Benjamin Franklin was also hailed as the first great philosopher and great man of letters of the New World. A man of wide-ranging interests, he gained renown as an author, printer, scientist, civic activist and diplomat - all the more creditable given that he had little by way of formal education. This book is an inspirational and unique account of one of the most versatile and talented men in colonial America.
