What would Ben Franklin say if he could see us today? For decades his Poor Richard's Almanack provided sage advice and piquant commentary on 18th-century America—which we in the 21st century could certainly use when confronting issues like wages, elections, taxes, health care, education, budgets, prejudice, debt, marriage, and the media. Here the author of Letters to America takes up Franklin's voice to expound upon such aphorisms from the Almanack as "Small leaks will sink the greatest ship," "An investment in knowledge pays the best interest," and "He's the best physician that knows the worthlessness of most medicines."
