Benjamin Franklin; An American Life
Walter Isaacson

Benjamin Franklin; An American Life, by Walter Isaacson is a fantastic book. I have always been a fan of the Founder Fathers and what they accomplished in their time. Ben Franklin is the founder father that would fit best in today's world. His numerous accomplishments and constant curiosity lead him to achieve greatness in every field he gave his attention.

When reading this book, Walter Isaacson gives you a sense of being in the moment of every aspect of Franklin's life. You find yourself both reading for pleasure and learning from the experiences of Franklin's life.

This is a great book to start with if anyone has ever wondered about the men that created the USA we know today.
