Überblick: Benjamin Franklin writes journalist and biographer Walter Isaacson was that rare Founding Father who would sooner wink at a passer-by than sit still for a formal portrait. What's more Isaacson relates in this fluent and entertaining biography the revolutionary leader represents a political tradition that has been all but forgotten today one that prizes pragmatism over moralism religious tolerance over fundamentalist rigidity and social mobility over class privilege. That broadly democratic sensibility allowed Franklin his contradictions as Isaacson shows. Though a man of lofty principles Franklin wasn't shy of using sex to sell the newspapers he edited and published; though far from frivolous he liked his toys and his mortal pleasures; and though he sometimes gave off a simpleton image he was a shrewd and even crafty politician. Isaacson doesn't shy from enumerating Franklin’s occasional peccadilloes and shortcomings in keeping with the iconoclastic nature of our time--none of which however stops him from considering Benjamin Franklin 'the most accomplished American of his age' and one of the most admirable of any era. And here’s one bit of proof: as a young man Ben Franklin regularly went without food in order to buy books. His example as always is a good one--and this is just the book to buy with the proceeds from the grocery budget. --Gregory McNamee Pressestimmen 'The New York Times Book Review' A thoroughly researched crisply written convincingly argued chronicle.'The New Yorker' Energetic entertaining and worldly.'The Washington Post Book World' The most readable full-length Franklin biography available.'The New York Times' 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.
