Abstract:

Since the first publication of The Way to Wealth in the1750s millions of aspiring entrepreneurs have usedBenjamin Franklin's advice to create and maintainprofitable businesses. Many of its maxims and proverbshave become part of the fabric of western society: "Earlyto bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy andwise...Nothing but money is sweeter than honey...If youwould have your business done, go; if not,send...Creditors have better memories than debtors."Franklin died a hugely wealthy man and he is still listedin the Wealthy 100: The 100 Wealthiest Americans inHistory. Here Steve Shipside interprets Franklin's textfor the modern day. Steve Shipside's interpretation isnot a substitute for the original; its purpose is simplyto illustrate the timeless nature of Franklin's insightsby bringing them to life through modern personal financecase studies. This brilliant interpretation of The Way toWealth is an entertaining accompaniment to one of themost famous books ever written.
