The New York Sun listed J.A. Leo Lemay’s The Life of Benjamin Franklin: Printer and Publisher, 1730-1747 as one of the best books of 2006. Reviewer Carl Rollyson says:
Mr. Lemay’s prose is well-paced, and he intrigues even seasoned students of Franklin with new details and, even better, new attributions — delightful additions to the Franklin canon that include public letters, essays, satires, and speeches.
