I read Mr. Isaacson’s “Steve Jobs” and enjoyed his writing style. I noticed he had written a bio of Benjamin Franklin. Being interested in American history I took the plunge. A long volume but very interesting. The author’s style made the book a relatively easy read. George Washington is considered the Father of Our Country. After reading about Mr. Franklin’s life, I consider Franklin as the country’s true Father. Benjamin was an intellect, a rascal and a shrewd negotiator. He was the only man to sign all four documents that ended up creating the United States of America. As also noted in David McCullough’s 2002 Pulitzer Prize winning book “John Adams”, the true date of our declaration of independence is reconfirmed. A book that should be “recommended reading” at any level of American History class.
Recommended by an old friend. Another of the historical mysteries I enjoy. A hideous crime investigated by a hunchback lawyer. His search for the criminal is nicely entwined with Cromwell’s ruthless dissolution of the monasteries during the reign of Henry VIII. Informative quick history lesson. Will check out the other stories in the series.
