OK, but I prefer his Autobiography
Any additional comments?
As a curious Australian, I have only fairly recently discovered how interesting early American history is. This overview is quick and helpful but I found Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography (not an Encyclopedia Britannica publication as far as I know) to be more generally interesting, and a better place for the novice to start.
