Walter Isaacson | Benjamin Franklin | Book Review by Lisa Woodruff of Organize 365

On Mondays, I will be posting a podcast recording of previously recorded book reviews. These are books that have impacted me that I want to share with you. In October, I dive into my favorite books about Washington, D. C., the White House, and Benjamin Franklin. I absolutely love history and think it has so much to teach us. 

This week’s book review is of Benjamin Franklin: An American Life by Walter Isaacson.

Ben Franklin is just such a fascinating human being. I listened to this 25 hour audible book. Every 15 years he was a different person - politician, editor, shopkeeper, diplomat, inventor, and scientist. He was able to make a major impact in each of these fields. We are blessed to know so much about him because he was a devoted keeper of a personal journal. 

When I read about leaders, I try to see what I can apply to my own life. Even so many years ago, Benjamin Franklin had a mastermind. He was able to get great ideas from a wide variety of different people in diverse industries.
