Benjamin Franklin was certainly a remarkable fellow. The first half of this autobiography was a lot more interesting to me than the second half. In the first half, he writes mostly about his private life and intends the book as instructions on life for his son. The second half, written much later, is intended as a public autobiography and seemed much more distant and fact-recounting rather than personal.
