The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin is the traditional name for the unfinished record of his own life written by Benjamin Franklin from 1771 to 1790; however, Franklin himself appears to have called the work his Memoirs.
Although it had a tortuous publication history after Franklin’s death, this work has become one of the most famous and influential examples of autobiography ever written.
Franklin’s Autobiography has received widespread praise, both for its historical value as a record of an important early American and for its literary style. It is often considered the first American book to be taken seriously by Europeans as literature

Here is what others say about this book..
This is a wonderfully inspiring Read. It’s a small book packed with great insights into virtuous living. His curiosity and observation of the world around him lead him to live an amazingly full life in which he accomplished much for the good of mankind. All this combined with his wit and writing style make it enjoyable to read and truly encourages the reader towards self improvement. I’m actually reading it again right now. It’s great for new year’s resolutions.
Rick Skwiot says…
There are any number of reasons to read Ben Franklin’s autobiography.
For the fetching language and wit. As when he deviated from his vegetarianism to eat some fish that “smelt admirably well,” saying, “If you eat one another, I don’t see why we mayn’t eat you…So convenient a thing it is to be a reasonable creature, since it enables one to find or make a reason for everything one has a mind to do.”
This is an autobiography from a man who was very famous for his diplomacy.I am sure we all can learn something from him.Go get a copy of this book.
