One of the founding fathers of the United States of America, Benjamin Franklin was a true Renaissance man: writer, publisher, scientist, inventor, diplomat, and politician. During his long life he offered advice on obtaining wealth, organised public institutions, contributed to the birth of a nation, and negotiated with foreign powers to ensure his country's survival. Through the words of the elder statesman himself. The Autobiography and Other Writings presents remarkable insight into the man and his accomplishments. Additional writings from Benjamin Franklin's wife and son provide a more intimate portrait of the husband and father who became a legend in his own time.
