Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2006 - 141 pages
Presenting pearls of wisdom on wealth from Benjamin Franklin. Franklin compiled and self-published his own venerated advice and proverbs on personal finance from Poor Richardís Almanack. Since its appearance as a pamphlet in 1758, it has been reprinted and translated countless times. This new edition includes not only his counsel on financial planning, investment, prudence, and retirement strategies, but also essays and annotations about the legendary American entrepreneur himself. Additionally, it features facsimile pages of the original typed text, with adjacent pages providing modern translations for a 21st century audience. With an insightful foreword by renowned Franklin biographer Walter Isaacson and luxurious packaging, The Way to Wealth serves as both an inspirational keepsake and a clever guide to economic success.
