Benjamin Franklin<br>By<br>Walter Isaacson
Franklin these days is more an icon than a man, more an adjective than a noun. For those who want to understand, or simply revisit, the founding period of America this book is a pleasant sojourn back in time. And of course, if you are a collector, or simply harbor the collecting impulse, you will find this book a pleasant point of departure for what may be an interlude or the start of a life-long passion. From there to browse or acquire you can head to a bookstore, a book dealer, to online listing sites, to the auctions or to eBay. And, if you prefer just to read, his life lives on in the public libraries.
For this book the price of admission, in hard cover, is $30. On Amazon its $15.37 plus shipping.
