Benjamin Franklin: The New Prometheus


Biographical profile of Benjamin Franklin, the most famous and highly regarded American in Europe during colonial times and the Revolutionary War. One of the Founding Fathers, Franklin was instrumental in virtually every phase of the birth, creation and establishment of the United States. However, Franklin was a man of many talents, a true American Leonardo da Vinci who excelled in many fields. His printing and publishing business made him independently wealthy. A man of wit and charm, he was quite the ladies' man. His writing was as powerful as it was popular; his scientific experiments heralded a new age of electricity. Franklin inventions ran the gamut from catheters, bifocal glasses, the glass armonica, Franklin stove and the lightning rod. The lighting rod saved countless lives and Franklin gave it to the world free of charge and free of patents. Award-winning author Daniel Alef who has written and published more than 300 biographical profiles of America's great titans, tells the story of Ben Franklin's remarkable life.
