Summary
Franklin's life was not necessarily an open book. His secrets were many, and he kept them close as any gentleman of his time would. However he was generous with his advice to others about self-improvement and developing an entrepreneurial spirit, habits he developed early in life and used to full effect in his various careers as inventor, scientist, author, politician, diplomat and businessman. McCormick (business, Baylor U.) provides modern-day commentary to augment Franklin's observations on moral instruction, trades, experimentation, commercial and social friendships, determination, mistakes, frugality, flexibility within goal-setting, family, religion, productivity, education, community service, partnerships, fundraising, and dealing with the Other. McCormick's commentary gives general readers a better understanding of Franklin's times, the impact of his efforts, his observations about business and self-improvement, and the process of becoming an entrepreneur, whether then or now.
