Grover Gardner makes the difficult job of interpreting the stilted English of the Revolutionary period into a conversational style that is comfortable to follow. His relaxed pace and good diction allow for maximum absorption of the author's abundant historical detail. Listening to Franklin's narrative gives insight into how he educated himself, first through personal education and later through community reading and writing groups which he formed for enlightenment. His descriptions of life of the times and his adaptations to it provide us with a personal peek at American history through the eyes of one of our country's greatest founders--a printer, inventor, statesman, and intellectual.
