Description

  • Simon Schuster
  • In this authoritative and engrossing full-scale biography, Walter Isaacson, bestselling author of Einstein and Steve
    Jobs, shows how the most fascinating of America's founders helped define our national character.

    Benjamin Franklin is the founding father who winks at us, the one who seems made of flesh rather than marble. In a
    sweeping narrative that follows Franklin’s life from Boston to Philadelphia to London and Paris and back, Walter
    Isaacson chronicles the adventures of the runaway apprentice who became, over the course of his eighty-four-year life,
    America’s best writer, inventor, media baron, scientist, diplomat, and business strategist, as well as one of its most
    practical and ingenious political leaders. He explores the wit behind Poor Richard’s Almanac and the wisdom behind the
    Declaration of Independence, the new nation’s alliance with France, the treaty that ended the Revolution, and the
    compromises that created a near-perfect Constitution.

    In this colorful and intimate narrative, Isaacson provides the full sweep of Franklin’s amazing life, showing how he
    helped to forge the American national identity and why he has a particular resonance in the twenty-first century.
