  • The real Father of our country. Aug 21, 2014
    by Gerald

    Things never heard about. Insights that seem to be from a best friend. A person I wish I could meet.

  • Pertinent to the subject. Dec 2, 2010
    by Warren E J

    No one today does it better than Isaacson.
    This is an insightful treament of a seminal
    figure in American history, adding more
    specific detail as well as evaluative
    interpretation which extends beyond the
    material touched upon by other writers.
    Having assisted another author treating
    the subject of Franklin, I can appreciate
    the scholarship reflected in Isaacson's
    analysis of the great man's life and
    contribution to the history of the country.
