A publisher, printer, author, scientist, and inventor - and a success in every field - Benjamin Franklin made his greatest accomplishments as America's first diplomat. When he sailed for England in 1764, he intended to petition Parliament in London for a redress of grievances of the state of Pennsylvania, but his energies were soon enlisted by the whole of the Thirteen Colonies. This recording - compiled from Franklin's own letters, papers, and original documents - recounts the diplomat's brilliant campaign to have Grenville's infamous Stamp Act repealed.

Listener Opinions

    " Written in first-person, reading this book felt like I was sitting in the same room with Benjamin Franklin just listening to him tell the stories of his incredible life. Free on my kindle. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marina | 6/12/2011

    " Quite possibly one of the most boring books I have ever read in my life. Benjamin Franklin's efforts to immortalize his heroism on paper are conceited, contradictory, and totally uninspiring at best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sergey | 6/9/2011

    " An excellent mind and strong will. In most aspects he was a man I like to be like. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura | 6/7/2011

    " Though perhaps one of the most interesting people of all time, Ben Franklin's autobiography is one of the most boring books of all time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 6/5/2011

    " An interesting account of his life in his own words. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 5/30/2011

    " Everyone should read this!

    Did you know that besides discovering electricity he also founded the first library, U of Penn, the fire station and various benevolent societies? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Danjewygros | 5/28/2011

    " It's written in the old english so it's a bit of a pain to read. I found it a bit boring, which is a shame given how amazing this homie was. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nickie | 5/22/2011

    " This is most interesting. A small glimpse into his ancestry. I'm not far into the reading but there is a way that Benjamin gets your attention and wants you to learn more about him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 5/19/2011

    " Good read, but me and Ben, we wouldn't have been friends in his day! "
