BEN & ME In Search of a Founder's Formula for a Long and Useful Life

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Eric Weiner

Biography & Memoir • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

This portrait of Founding Father Ben Franklin is part biography, part travelogue, and part personal commentary. Because of that, it's eminently suited to audio. Author Eric Weiner is the narrator, and his presentation exactly fits the material. His pace is easy to follow, and his tone is easy on the ears. As he walks in the footsteps of Franklin in the various places where he lived, Weiner's narration is like an ongoing conversation with the listener. You see what the author sees and can easily imagine what Franklin saw. The book is filled with small details that spice the narrative. The book is fun to listen to--any audiobook that can make an hour of weeding the garden fly by is a real winner. R.C.G.
