Now & Ben

The Modern Inventions of Benjamin Franklin

ISBN: 978-0-312-53569-8

by Gene Barretta

What would you do if you lived in a community without a library, hospital, post office, or fire department? If you were Benjamin Franklin, you'd set up these organizations yourself. Franklin also designed the lightning rod, suggested the idea of daylight saving time, invented bifocals and the odometer--all inspired by his common sense and intelligence.
