Description
 
The most versatile founding Father was a husband, a father, a writer, an inventor, a statesman, a fundraiser and a military leader. But in his mind, he was first and foremost a businessman. Franklinís captivating adventures include his almost single-handed responsibility for establishing the first media empire, the first public library, the first fire brigade, the Univ. of PA, the first book club and the first franchise -- all of which are detailed within these pages with Franklinís characteristic mix of humility and pride. Franklin chronicles his own story, from his early days growing up in colonial Boston to his retirement from printing and growing involvement in national politics. His wisdom transcends the ages -- and his life lessons and insights are as compelling today as ever. Ill.
