    An interesting read from Colonial America's Renaissance man. Franklin frequently quotes his alias, Poor Richard. He also laments high taxes under the crown (then 10% ). A few wonderful, noteworthy quotes :------------------------------"Lost time can never be found again.""One today is worth two tomorrows.""Since thou are not sure of a minute, throw not away an hour.""Keep thy shop, and thy shop will keep thee.""If you would have a faithful servant, and one you'd like, serve yourself.""A fat kitc [...]

    We are taxed twice as much by our idleness. Idleness taxes many of us much more, if we reckon all that is spent in absolute sloth, or doing of nothing, with that which is spent in idle employments or amusements, that amount to nothing. Sloth,by bringing on diseases, absolutely shortens life.Sloth, like rust, consumes faster than labor wears, while the used key is always bright.---------------------------The Indies have not made Spain rich, because her outgoes are greater than her incomes. Away t [...]

  • Simon Eskildsen

    Very short book that does a great job of extracting the parts of Franklin's autobiography and almanac on matters relevant to setting yourself up for success in business. "Experience keeps a dear school, but fools learn in no other" is one of my favourite quotes from the book. Another one on the defence of state taxes: "We are taxed twice as much by our idleness, three times as much by our pride, and four times as much by our folly." The book is structured around 5 areas that you must master: (1) [...]

  • Cagliostro

    Ο Δρόμος προς τον Πλούτο αποτελεί ένα εξαισιο δείγμα πρακτικής σοφίας που ξεχειλίζει απο την βαθιά κατανόηση της ζωής που προσφέρει η αεικίνητη παρατήρηση συνδυαζόμενη με την άσβεστη δίψα για γνώση. Ειδική αναφορά οφείλω να κάνω για την επιστολή στην Δεσποινίδα Στιβενσον [...]

  • Joe Moses

    Hodgepodge of ideological advice which Franklin synthesized from his Poor Richard's Almanack arranged as a type of sermon from "Father Abraham". Certainly contains some witty adages and timeless truisms on prudence, temperance, and diligence, but overall its philosophy is a secularized "Calvinist work ethic" which was common in colonial times - a valuing of frugality and hard work as a means to social status and success in order to prove one's salvation. Although the modern "American work ethic" [...]

  • Hunter Tidwell

    Some real protestant work ethic secular asceticism if I ever saw it.

  • Soheil

    A short book with sound advice. But you can find all this in books such as Rich Dad Poor Dad or the Richest man in Babylon.

  • Raphael Bernardo

    15 minute read but you get to hear Ben Franklin say 'No Pain, No Gain' and 'Can't teach a pig to fly' in old English. Good Shit. Read it.

  • Tien Phat Nguyen

    Benjamin Franklin is undoubtedly one of the wisest man in his generation. This little book compose only a few pages, but deliver the wisdom of Ben about the rules to be wealthy. Even though these principles may seem simple and familiar, they are actually very much valuable, as this is the lessons learned by someone who was a genius in his ages.My only regret is that I was unable to understand all the proverbs Ben used in this book. I will definitely re-read it to gain a deeper understanding of t [...]

  • Kholoud

    It is amazing how this book relates so much to our consumer mentality nowadays. It is very captivating and full of wisdom that is delivered in an amusing way.

  • Senthil

    Best book on personal finance and success. After reading this I have decided that I am not going to read any other book on self-help/personal finance/success in my life time.

  • Miguel Limeres

    Clean,straightStraight forward, simple to follow,should be a most to read for high school students during summer session, it should explain more the benefits of saving

  • Leoung

    Good thoughtful bookEvery concept is still applicable to these day "Industry and frugality." Readers spend little time to absorb important and practical idea.

  • Brian Cox

    Great investment in yourself.Easy and enjoyable to read. Filled with wisdom. I'm excited to start focusing on the thirteen virtues and applying them to my daily life.

  • Will

    Quick read. Timeless advice. This book won't make you rich, but it can lead you along the right path.

  • Alfred

    Teaches values and principles to live by that will improve work ethic.

  • Charissa Wilkinson

    Overview: Mr. Franklin, under his Poor Richard pseudonym, has decided to let others know how he sees to get wealth. Will this idea work in today’s age?Likes: These ideas are things that most of us have been warned about by our grandparents, at the latest. Some have even heard this from our parents.Conclusion: This is a very interesting book. Yes, it does work in today’s age. It may be the slower way, but it is the safer way. I would call it required reading.

  • Joseph Scaduto

    After reading Benjamin Franklin's relatively short essay, "The Way to Wealth," I question what all those years in public school ever really taught me, if not some of the most fundamental truths of industriousness, focus, saving and frugality. Originally published in 1758, the maxims espoused by Benjamin Franklin are both universal and timeless. We should all take a moment to reflect on his words, and then act upon them. Quick, entertaining, educational and fun read!

  • Justin Magdellini

    A quick, eazy and fast read that is packed full with delightful anecdotes and aphorism that are both immensely funny and deeply thought-provoking. All scene and responsible thinkers must read this book! this is not a get-rich-quick book but rather a collection of encouraging statements that are geared toward motivating financial wisdom both on a macro and micro level.

  • Nessa

    Ugh, I just wanted him to shut the fuck up about Poor Richard, jfc. I eye-rolled so hard my eyes almost displaced itself, smh. It's just really annoying for the whole thing to just be QUOTES of other people (Poor Richard is Franklin's pseud which makes it all the most grating UUUGH!!).Bleh.

  • Marina

    This is an interesting read, don't get me wrong. The ideas Franklin is trying to convey are very clear and important and all, but the text became a bit tedious for me. Get over yourself Franklin, we all know Poor Richard is your own pseudonym, so stop quoting him as he were a brilliant man!

  • Daniel Astacio

    Should be required reading in schools!

  • MHN

    I found some quotes from Poor Richard in Benjamin Franklin’s autobiography which I like a lot so I was curious to find out more about this document.A pleasant short read with old wise advices.

  • Ben Harriman

    A wonderful book by Benjamin Franklin. A great story reflecting a simple of idea of wealth creation and how it's done.

  • Morgan

    This was a nice short read, it was just a summary of big points that he made in previous works. But if you want to learn something, choose a different book unless you don't have common sense.

  • Ayaz Zafar

    Never knew that Ben was such a sage person.

  • Suleiman Arabiat

    Benjamin Fraklin's works are powerful yet simple. Another short masterpiece, with direct, concise and practical recommendations on wealth.

  • Rajaram Swaminathan

    Great bookLiked the part on making a little book to track progress on the path to the 13 virtues. This is a great to translate things into deliberate action.

  • Jef

    Short and sweet, this book can be comfortably finished in 30 minutes although there's great quotes and value inside.While the concepts are close to or over 300 years old they're timeless and worth a read for anyone interested in wealth and habits
