Reviews of Benjamin Franklin: An American Life

Overall customer rating: 5.000
Warren E J

Pertinent to the subject.

by Warren E J on Dec 2, 2010

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.
