On the other hand, the autobiography- memoir -was previously addressed to his son William, but later on the entire aim of the book shifts. It is also warranted to argue that Franklin wrote for posterity, and was always extremely eager to give advice to all people. This can be evidenced from the fact he does shed a lot of focus on his plans for his personal development, but on the self improvement of others. To a greater extent, the reader is bound to grasp the feeling that Franklin’s major aim was to serve the good of the public (Franklin, 2006). A notable example is when he invented the Franklin stove, which is still being used by numerous people. Franklin turned down demands to patent his stove (Franklin, 2006). On the contrary, it is evident that Franklin was a master of all trades from his various jobs ranging from a postmaster to an author (Franklin, 2006). It is clear that the readers will find the book likable since Franklin has an amiable, personable and a sociable character. In one word, Franklin can be referred to as an exceptional leader. The book is without a doubt an entrancing one that will automatically glue the reader to the subsequent page, and chapter in general. This work shall endeavor to review the Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin by highlighting the major topics in the book. In addition, the review shall lead to a discussion of how the book is likened to the title, and how appropriate it is to be recommended to other readers. The review shall also go over the main points of the entire work, discussing the main themes. 2.0. Overview The autobiography, as a work of History, is categorized into parts, each that explain the life and times of Franklin. Throughout the sections of the book, the readers are taken via a process of an explanation of the intricacies of human life, as seen in the life of Franklin. Franklin is seen to be a wonderful person who has gone through the challenges of life just like any other normal individual. It is also palpable that after reading the chapter human beings are able to relate their lives with that of Franklin, in terms of how we aspire and always crave to attain our dreams as persons. From Franklin words, aspirations and dreams are our main motivators in life; thus, humans always endeavor towards attaining their life goals. In the first part of the Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, Franklin indicates that he wrote this autobiography to his first born son, William (Franklin, 2006). This was in 1771 when he was in England. The main aim of the biography, according to Franklin (2006), was to ensure that Franklin’s ancestry would be chronicled and well known to his son. However it is vital to note that the first part has made a lot of reference to the public, despite the fact that the memoir was directed to William, Franklin’s son. Franklin (2006) argues that one cannot live life twice, and it is worth noting down the events of one’s life. The first part also gives a brief description of his life in Boston, and his passion for reading, and his training job. He runs away at the age of sixteen, as he hates his life as his brother’s worker. It is in Philadelphia that Franklin gets a job in Keimer printers.
