"The Compleated Autobiography retains [the] sophistication, humor, and sense of irony
that made the original autobiography a classicand is destined to create a renewed appreciation of
Benjamin Franklin."National Review
Benjamin Franklin's autobiography is one of the greatest autobiographies of all timebut it was incomplete.
Franklin ended his life's story in 1757, when he was fifty-one. He lived another thirty-three eventful years,
serving as America's advocate in London, Pennsylvania's representative in the Continental Congress, and
America's wartime ambassador to France. Now, at last, we get the rest of the story, in Franklin's own words.
One of the most fascinating of our Founding Fathers, Franklin was a polymath, a practical statesman, and an
incomparable cynic and wit. The Compleated Autobiography by Benjamin Franklin, faithfully compiled
and edited from Franklin's papers, reveals why he became a spokesman for American independence; his views
on the Constitution; what he really thought of his fellow patriots, like Adams and Jefferson; his candid views on
French women, the Penn family, and his own faith; and much more.
Mark Skousen, Ph.D. is a descendant of Benjamin Franklin through Franklin's grandson Louis Bache. He has had a lifelong interest in the "grandfather" of our country. Dr. Skousen's career has sometimes followed that of his illustrious ancestor, as a publisher, author, financial advisor, teacher, father, public servant, and world traveler.
