Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Although the author wrote this book almost exactly 250 years ago the advice is still just as true and relevant today as it was back then. This book is full of sound advice about attitudes to life, work and money management. Many of the sayings that Franklin included are still in use today such as "no pain, no gain" As we all reflect on the folly of recent times with excessive consumer borrowing and our obsession with accruing stuff be it cars, the latest fashion, expensive meals and generally over spending then this little book makes for a sobering read. It's just full of little life tips and fables and is not dull or depressing. I liked it so much I am buying copies for my kids. We tend to think we are so much wiser and more enlightened than our ancestors and in some respects of course we are but I urge people to read this book and I am confident you will learn some life lessons from it.

A great little book, that teaches a lot in a few pages. Keep it in your Jacket's pocket and read it whenever you have a minute to spare.
A very practical read for especially busy executives; it should take maybe less than a hour.

Ben says it all with lots of "catchy" sayings! It is a must read for anyone -- including children/young adults.

No Harvard MBA would be complete without the wisdom contained within this little book. A captivating story line with principles and nuggets of truth just leaping off of the page. Will it take a week to progress start to finish? No , hardly an hour!

In America there is a tremendous affection for Benjamin Franklin, he even popped up in the tv series Bewitched as a kindly old man. Despite not being a dead president his face is on the hundred dollar bill.

Here he is less well known. He came from a poor background and started out as a printer. Through hard work and application he became one of the founding fathers of America. He was a genuine polymath, experimenting with electricity, and inventing the lightning rod and bifocals. He was the author of Poor Richard’s Almanack, which in addition to the usual dates and facts, was peppered with homely saying. Franklin was also devoted to relentless self improvement. This short book captures some Franklin’s sayings and observations. Generally these are around the theme of hard work and thrift.

Despite his achievements, Franklin wrote in a very down to earth and homely style. His focus is very much on leading a virtuous life first, with good things flowing from that, rather than clever tricks to get ahead.

This is an inexpensive and quick read, and if you have not read it, you really should, and if you already have it is well worth having and reading again.
