Benjamin Franklin narrated and lived the Great
American Success Story. As America’s prototypical
polymath, he excelled—and even defined—a
number of professions including printer, writer,
postmaster, scientists, inventor, public citizen,
politician, and diplomat. He was a cornerstone in
the foundation of the United States. He discovered
practicable uses for electricity. He was America’s
first great satirist. He founded the University of
Pennsylvania. He invented bifocals. He was a
legendary ladies’ man. He was all of these things...
and was so much more. Ben Franklin For Beginners
opens the book on Benjamin Franklin and
tells the story of his life and times with wry wit and whimsical drawings.
