Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin

by Benjamin Franklin

Excellent reading from any aspect. He has written an informal account of his life, meant for his son. It is amazing what Benjamin Franklin accomplished, but I am even more pleased with his integrity. At a young age, he figured out what kind of person he wanted to be, and worked on it and became that way. For instance, he used to be argumentative but as he said, "for the past 50 years no one has heard" (anything but gentle kindness. And he was very effective in his life. Read this book. I am going to buy a paper copy.

Duel on Syrtis

by Poul William Anderson

A well-written story, with some surprises. Has all the essential aspects of drama in a 50s SF world... don't know how to rate 50's SF... I personally like it. average or better.
