Ben Franklin's Guide to Wealth: Being a 21st Century Treatise on What It Takes to Live a Rich Life
It isn’t all about the Benjamins! A revolutionary way of looking at money and value, based on the writings of the Founding Father.
Ben Franklin’s Guide to Wealth is the modern version of the treatise The Way of Wealth by Richard Saunders—one of Ben Franklin’s many pseudonyms. Franklin practiced what he preached in the treatise, and it made him rich enough to have a full life, travel extensively, and follow his intellectual musings, which in turn led him to become an accomplished scientist, inventor, political activist, diplomat, and writer. Franklin wasn’t born rich. He built his legacy using his intelligence, curiosity, natural good sense, and proclivity for thrift and hard work. When he died, he left a fortune. Now the authors bring practicing what Franklin preached up to date for today’s busy lifestyles, with sage advice on a range of financial basics including debt, thrift, the value of work and business, developing financial responsibility, money and time, and preparing for the future.
It’s time to think about what “rich” really means. It’s time to get back to financial basics. It’s time to look for guidance from America’s original financial guru—Ben Franklin.
