Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Benjamin Franklin set the tone for more than a century of positive-thinking American literature with this inspiring 1791 account of his education and early career as a printer, inventor, and diplomat.” Library Journal
“The most widely read autobiography ever written by an American. It has served many Americans as it may have served Franklin—to define what it meant, what it had meant, and what it ought to mean to be an American.” Edmund S. Morgan, emeritus professor of history, Yale University
“Franklin’s is one of the greatest autobiographies in literature, and towers over other autobiographies as Franklin towered over other men.” William Dean Howells
