The Abridged Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
Daniel V. Runyon, author
Benjamin Franklin shaped American journalism, civic life, economics, and politics by his example as a publisher, editor, writer, business leader, and statesman. Every American should read the story he wrote of his own life. And now they can, for this edition of his autobiography tells his entire story in his own words, just 29% shorter with fewer words and shorter sentences. You will smile, cry, laugh, or wince on almost every page at his humor, pathos, wit, and profound insight into human thought and behavior.
