Actually, I ordered this little book by mistake -- it was a different Ben Franklin book that I was looking for. But it was a happy mistake, because I am enjoying it immensely. I keep it on my coffee table with the "big books," and my guests can pick it up and peruse quickly, and I can cite his wonderful remarks for a wide variety of occasions.

It is a nice compact edition of some of Benjamin Franklin's choice quotes. Always nice to keep in pocket when you need to say something profound. Takes up just a little more space than the currency featuring his portrait. It is often said that time is money, but this book is worth your time but a little overpriced...

One of our funniest, smartest founding fathers. Old Ben had it all figured out and loved his women and a fast life style after flying his kite.

I love reading the numerous wise words of Ben Franklin and hoped this book would be a great collection of his writings. Unfortunately, the book only lasted 30 minutes. The content was enjoyable however, the layout a little different. For the price though, one wise quote taken away justifies the purchase.

Amazing Wisdom and Remarkable Insight is shared to all willing to accept it! Benjamin Franklin was a leading scientist of his day, a very successful business owner, and the leading diplomat to France during the Revolutionary War. While in France, the greatest scientist in Europe came to him to discuss scientific theories of his day. He invented the Lightning Rod to prevent wooden ships of his day from catching fire, also the pot belly stove to allow cooking inside without carbon monoxide killing those gathered around, and he released his patents for use by all - without asking for a royalty.

Wonderful wisdom. Less flattering is that this book version is small, small, small and ridiculously small. I have to use a magnifier to read it due to its size. I should return it for that reason alone. I will be more vigilant on my next bargain purchase.

This book was stunningly witty, wise, and, believe it or not, instructive. It reads like Proverbs if Proverbs were written today. Benjamin Franklin speaks across the centuries.
