The Age of Benjamin Franklin by Robert J. Allison
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 448 MB
Overview: We all have certain images of Ben Franklin: the witty Founding Father who promoted independence; the Philadelphia printer who created Poor Richard’s Almanack; the scientist who conducted experiments with kites in electrical storms; the author of what is arguably America’s best-known autobiography. These images reveal an intellectually curious and successful man of the 18th century, but they don’t fully capture the rich and multi-faceted genius of one of the most extraordinary Americans-perhaps the quintessential American-in history.Why is Benjamin Franklin so compelling? What made him so successful in his day? And why has he continued to influence generations of Americans? Tackle these questions and more in The Age of Benjamin Franklin, a thorough-and sometimes surprising-course that presents a full portrait of a personality that defies easy definition.
