Sinopsis completa THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY AND OTHER WRITINGS y descripción
One of the founding fathers of the United States of America, Benjamin Franklin was a true Renaissance man: writer, publisher, scientist, inventor, diplomat, and politician.
During his long life, he offered advice on obtaining wealth, organized public institutions, contributed to the birth of a nation and negotiated with foreign powers to ensure the survival of his country.
Through the words of the statesman himself, The Autobiography and Other Writings presents a remarkable view of man and his achievements.
Other writings by Benjamin Franklin's wife and son provide a more intimate portrait of the husband and father who became a legend in their own time.
