Benjamin Franklin is a subject worthy of study, and it is interesting to see how many parallels there are between his time and ours.

@dturneresq read this before the Steve Jobs book was out. Isaacson did a great job working on his craft and his biographies came out quite well regardless of the subject (deceased or alive).

@kunalslab True, but much of this book is actually based on the famous autobiography of Franklin that was required reading in the 19th and early 20th Century!

@dturneresq never knew that! What a plagiarist ;)
