Overview

In 1758, Benjamin Franklin published the 25th and final issue of Poor Richard's Almanac. As a preface to this final edition, he wrote The Way to Wealth and introduced Father Abraham as the main character in the tale.

Father Abraham embodied the financial wisdom that "Poor" Richard Saunders - one of Benjamin Franklin's many pen names - incorporated in the 25 years during which the almanac was a staple on mantels above fireplaces, in personal libraries and on the tables of colonial America. In 2008, on the 250th anniversary year of that event, Jeffrey Reeves is adding a unique and timely perspective to this classic book about money and life.
The wisdom that Dr. Benjamin Franklin captured in The Way to Wealth is timeless. However, the vernacular of 1758 sometimes obscures the meaning for today's economy and for the personal economies of 21st Century Americans. Jeffrey's commentary adds clarity to the language and insights found in The Way to Wealth's tested and true principles and practices.
