For decades, Benjamin Franklin’s Poor Richard’s Almanack provided sage advice and commentary on eighteenth-century America. Now, a modern businessman reflects-writing as Benjamin Franklin-on what America has become.

Federal and personal debt are ballooning beyond sustainable levels. Our futures are being jeopardized. 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 (not to mention a good sprinkling of aphorisms both old and new), Benjamin Franklin, through Tom Blair, moves from the national deficit to Wall Street, from health care to marital bliss. The result is electrifying.

Poorer Richard's America

Great Read

Very entertaining yet poignant narrative of our America. The author could not be more non-partisan, yet direct in his assessment of America and America tomorrow if we do not act today!
