This book about Benjamin Franklin, is about 10 days in his, 30,761 days life that changed are world. A couple of the days tied together about him making electricity. If it weren't for him, making this and figuring out how to make electricity, then we might not be to were we are today. In this book, it just explains why/how Ben Franklin changed are world, or who knows where we would be today.

Colbert has another hite in his 10 Days series. In this book, he picks 10 days of Benjamin Franklin's life that set the tone for future endeavors of Ben and of the United States. The reader follows Ben from the time he runs away from an apprenticeship to strike out on his own to his death 3o,761 days later. Students will love this shortened biography and still learn about Ben Franklin and the start of our nation. I can't wait to see what Colbert's next subject will be.

This book was a semi interesting memoir, at times the story was nice, exiting, and very descriptive. but at other times the author made me think, "i would have added a word there", or "This day wasn't very interesting, maybe i should skip to a different day" but overall, it was a good book.
