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.

About the Author:

Benjamin Franklin was born in Boston on January 17, 1706. He was the tenth son of soap maker, Josiah Franklin. Benjamin's mother was Abiah Folger. Benjamin Franklin was in energetic innovator. He owned and operated newspapers and publishing companies. He operated the postal service for colonial America, founded libraries, started the first volunteer fire department, and was an indefatigable inventor. At age forty, Benjamin Franklin retired from business to dedicate himself to both his scientific research and service to the fledgling American government. Benjamin Franklin is unique among the Founders. He is the only person that acted on behalf of the newly founded United States of America and signed all four of the Founding Documents: The Declaration of Independence, the Amity Treaty with France, The Treaty of Paris, and the US Constitution. Franklin died on April 17, 1790 at the age of 84. Over 20,000 people attended his funeral.
