Summary
Young Benjamin Franklin wants to be a sailor, but his father won't hear of it. The other trades he tries-candle maker, joiner, boot closer, turner-bore him through and through. Curious and inventive, Ben prefers to read, swim, fly his kite, and fly his kite while swimming. But each time he fails to find a profession, he takes some important bit of knowledge with him. That tendency is exactly what leads him to become the astonishingly versatile genius we remember today.
