Overview

Benjamin Franklin's classic Poor Richard's Almanac is chiefly remembered for being a repository of Franklin's aphorisms and proverbs, many of which live on in and are commonly used today, and have been newly typeset and included in this edition.
These maxims typically counsel thrift and courtesy, with a dash of cynicism.

The orginal Almanac also included the calendar, weather, poems, and astronomical and astrological information that a typical almanac of the period would contain - those sections are typically of little interest to the modern reader and are not contained in this edition.

Like this! In light of all the controversy in D.C revolutionary history is now more important than ever. Early American History, is the best.

We've all seen the occasional gem quoted from Ben Franklin's first mega-hit, Poor Richard's Almanack. I wanted to see what else was in there and found that (at least in the ebook version) it was a very long series of aphorisms. Most of them were not memorable, which explains why we ever read only the best ones!
