Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Benjamin Franklin's classic book is full of timeless, thought-provoking insights that are as valuable today as they were over two centuries ago. With more than 700 pithy proverbs, Franklin lays out the rules everyone should live by and offers advice on such subjects as money, friendship, marriage, ethics, and human nature. They range from the famous "A penny saved is a penny earned" to the lesser-known but equally practical "When the wine enters, out goes the truth." Other truisms like "Fish and visitors stink after three days" combine sharp wit with wisdom. Paul Volcker's new introduction offers a fascinating perspective on Franklin's beloved work.

Synopsis:

A bestseller--since the year 1732! Benjamin Franklin's classic fount of wisdom now has an introduction by a man who really understands that "a penny saved is a penny earned:" Paul Volcker, former chairman of the Federal Reserve.
