Publisher's Summary

Left unfinished at the time of his death, The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin has endured as one of the most well-known and influential autobiographies ever written. From his early years in Boston and Philadelphia to the publication of his Poor Richard's Almanac to the American Revolution and beyond, Franklin's autobiography is a fascinating, personal exploration into the life of America's most interesting founding father.

    Story
    "I found a new life long hero."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is the book that Davy Crockett took to his death bed. There is a reason for that. Once you finish the book you will be so impressed with the mind, frugality, tact, sociability, and wit of this man. He is a hero.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Benjamin Franklin


    Have you listened to any of Qarie Marshall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I started a virtue journal.

    "Wish Old Ben had finished this. Really enjoyed it"

    Wish Old Ben had finished this!
    I really enjoyed his micromanaging.
    He was definitely OCD.
    He was extremely disciplined and helped many people get a great start in life.

    "Most in depth"

    This autobiography was really in depth and you can mentally see what pointe in history he is walking through as his story is told. The only thing is the narration is a bit monotone and so you can easily zone out when listening and miss some parts.
