    A new take on Ben Franklin. Interesting. It's an apparently well-documented "tell all" on the American hero. He may be hero to many, but there are a few skeletons rattling around in his closet -- his association with, and support of, slavery. Funny, they teach about lightning and his kite and all that, but slightly more important is old Ben's wholehearted support for enslaving other human beings. Ben, you disappoint us.

    Amateurish, fails to keep on point, padded with material irrelevant to the author's stated subject. Poorly written and copy edited. (Unnecessary appendices, which seem to take up about a quarter of the book. No index. Material not well conceived. Haphazard.) An example of the perils of self-publishing.

    This was a real eye opener. The author has gone through hundreds of books and articles about Benjamin Franklin looking for references to slavery or slaves. It is fascinating that he owned slaves and the details about slavery in his life.

    A very good read and filled with facts and information I would never have realized about Ben Franklin and slavery.
