Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
Benjamin Franklin had an amazingly full life--printer, inventor, community leader, philosopher, and statesman.Franklin's autobiography will give you a small glimpse into the life of this great man. It is truly remarkable to see what one man can accomplish in his lifetime. Franklin's achievements can be credited to his self-discipline and superior work ethic. The reader will learn much about Franklin's practical philosophy. Franklin belonged to the Neo-classicists who valued thinking that was brilliant and paradoxical. Therefore, Franklin comes across with much wit. Regretfully, Franklin only made entries in his diary until 1757. Perhaps this ending of the journal was necessary for more pressing issues and projects.
