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. Many of its 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.Here Steve Shipside interprets Franklin's text for the modern day. Steve Shipside's interpretation 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 through modern personal finance case studies. This brilliant interpretation of "The Way to Wealth" is an entertaining accompaniment to one of the most famous books ever written.
