A look at the personal life of Franklin. Seems a bit swayed too far in pointing out his faults. It hardly touches on his diplomatic success, revolutionary zeal, or politics at home with the Continental Congress. Suggess the serious student look for a more complete video/documentary.
We are doomed to repeat histories mistakes if we do not learn from the past, however Ben Franklin is a man that accomplished much and we can learn something from this pure polymath. It is inspirational and shocking to see how much of an effect one man has had on history. The documentary has a slow down in the middle but i forgive it because there is much material to cover. Franklin transcended careers and interest and always excelled, he had a great capacity even though he started with very little. The documentary is an example of the American Dream achieved and then some.
