Review

"In its common sense, clarity, and accessibility, it is a fitting reflection of Franklin's sly pragmatism....This may be the book that most powerfully drives a new pendulum swing of the Franklin reputation." (The New York Times)

"The most readable full-length Franklin biography available." (The Washington Post Book World)

"A thoroughly researched, crisply written, convincingly argued chronicle." (The New York Times Book Review)
