Frequently bought together
The New Yorker Energetic, entertaining, and worldly.

Middle class values, frugality, innovative mind, service to people - traits that defined America's founding father 300 years ago are still as relevant today, if not more.
Shrewd businessman, politician, doting grandpa, passionate lover....
Between shades of grey that made up his personality, Ben winks at us through all the turmoils and challenges his America had to face when she challenged her colonial masters. He placed himself at the eye of the hurricane.
Read it for sheer inspiration !
Walter isaacson has done a great job taking throughout the life of Ben franklin in an adventurous way.
The quality of pages and the page lines is very poor , it doesn't qualify as a hardcover book. This high cost book is made, cut and bind in a very bad manner. This product is a duplicate replica of the original book.
