From this book you get a real idea of who this great man was. Such a humble, kind, intelligent, virtuous, and benevolent person is rare to find in public life. I am immensely thankful to live in the country that he helped to form. The innocent nature in which he went about things, the number of things he invented, and the self-deprecating humor employed make him very endearing. I look forward to reading this book again and again.
Inside it has a number of Franklin's writings; stuff he published in his newspapers, essays, letters, and of course it has his autobiography at the end. That's the part that I actually read. The autobiography is excellent. It gives you a real flavor for the kind of life that we all can live. Read it, enjoy it, learn from it, and then put it away for a few years and then read it again.
Buy the hardback if you love books not only for their words but... just because you love having nice books.
