Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For decades, Benjamin Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanack provided sage advice and commentary on eighteenth-century America. What would Ben Franklin say if he could see us today?

Federal and personal debt is ballooning beyond sustainable levels. Partisan bickering and the entrenched powers of special interests have made it nearly impossible for a real leader to lead. Where is a good American to turn? How about to the man who wrote this timeless observation: "A small leak will sink a great ship"?

Ben is back! With his signature intelligence and wit, Benjamin Franklin, through Tom Blair, moves from the national deficit to Wall Street, from health care to marital bliss. The result is electrifying.
