The Autobiography Of Benjamin Franklin is the unfinished record of his own life written by Benjamin Franklin from 1771 to 1790, and is now considered to be one of the most famous and influential examples of an autobiography ever written. Virtually self-taught, Franklin excelled as an athlete, a man of the written word, a scientist, a printer, an inventor, an editor, a philosopher and a writer with incredible wit, and he was probably the most successful diplomats in American history. The Autobiography Of Benjamin Franklin is segregated into four parts, each reflecting the different periods during which he wrote them. The book itself was written in three different times: 1771 in England, 1783-83 in France, and 1788 in America. Although remained unpublished during Franklin's lifetime, the first edition of the book was published in 1791 in French. He had written it with the intention of providing a guidance for his son, and is considered to be his best work which has gone on to secure a place in world literature. This edition was published by Touchstone in 2004, and is available in paperback. Key Features: The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin was the first full-length recorded book in history, and is considered the first American book to be taken seriously by Europeans as literature.

Born into a large family in Massachusetts, he attended school for a few years but was unable to graduate owing to financial problems. He played a major role in influencing the rising science of demography, labeled positive and negative charges on electricity, and experimented with the non-conduction of ice, among several other scientific feats. He has been honored on coinage and the $100 bill, and has left a legacy of great scientific and political achievements. He died in April 1970.
