I enjoyed discovering and rediscovering all the many things that Benjamin Franklin had a hand
in inventing. For example, I never knew he invented the writing chair (most well known as the
types of desks we had in high school). The author compares modern day life to life in Benjamin's
day and why he felt the need to come up with many of these inventions. Finally, the end of the
book shows a timeline of when each thing was deveoped or invented.
