The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
by Benjamin Franklin
I also think the autobiography of Benjamin Franklin is cool. Because like I said with Leonardo and Ben Franklin, they’re putting things on paper and that autobiography is cast as a letter to his son. It’s not some deep ruminations and things. It’s about how you make your way through this world.— Walter Isaacson, source
