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.
I have now gone on to get the autobiography of Benjamin Franklin as I enjoyed this so much.
