Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Chronicles the founding father's life and his multiple careers as a shopkeeper, writer, inventor, media baron, scientist, diplomat, business strategist, and political leader, while showing how his faith in the wisdom of the common citizen helped forge an American national identity based on the virtues of its middle class.


Review:

"In truth, Mr. Isaacson's book does not add enormously to the sum of our knowledge. But his clear prose and media savvy may bring in readers who have not ventured into the 18th century before....Mr. Isaacson has done plenty of research....He has also brought back the humor missing from the more academic tomes....[This] ambitious new study signals an important effort to bring Franklin back into focus. A new generation of readers needs to know more about the Founder who most appealingly embodies our great resourcefulness as a people--and more than a few of our weaknesses, too."

Ted Widmer, New York Observer, 06/30/2003

Review:

"[A] thoroughly researched, crisply written, convincingly argued chronicle that is also studded with little nuggets of fresh information."

Joseph J. Ellis, New York Times Book Review, 07/06/2003
