Since the first publication of The Way to Wealth in the 1750s millions of aspiring entrepreneurs have used Benjamin Franklin’s advice to create and maintain profitable businesses. Franklin was a phenomenon – a statesman, scientist, inventor, entrepreneur and best-selling author. Many of his maxims and proverbs have become part of the fabric of western society: "Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise"; "Nothing but money is sweeter than honey"; "If you would have your business done, go; if not, send"; "Creditors have better memories than debtors." Franklin died a hugely wealthy man and he is still listed in the Wealthy 100: The 100 Wealthiest Americans in History. In Benjamin Franklin’s The Way to Wealth Steve Shipside interprets Franklin’s text for the modern day. Twenty-first century readers will discover how to: • Be the driver, not the drone; • Practice your luck; • Suppress the desire to acquire; • Invest in your number one asset, you; • Tackle time thieves. Benjamin Franklin’s The Way to Wealth is not a substitute for the original. Its purpose is simply to illustrate the timeless nature of Franklin’s insights by bringing them to life with modern financial examples. Shipside’s brilliant interpretation of The Way to Wealth is an inspiring companion to one of the most famous and influential books ever written.
