Author Stacy Schiff in conversation with, J. A. Leo Lemay, author of Penn Press's The Life of Benjamin Franklin, a magisterial seven-volume project which brings together the major sources in Franklin's life.

His life and careers were so varied and successful that he remains, even today, the epitome of the self-made man.
