5.0 out of 5 stars Imagine Ben Franklin's relationship advice... June 9, 2014
By RW
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
and you will get a pretty good idea of the tone and content of this book. Like Franklin, William Cobbett was self-educated, practical and irreligious. Cobbett was English, but lived for a considerable time in north America. He was obsessed with thrift, the welfare of the working poor, agricultural improvements, and good management of anything under the sun. He made his living as a writer, mainly as a gadfly. He never backed down, as he always knew he was right, and he never minced words, as that would dilute his message. Some of his advice is still relevant, but read the book to enjoy Cobbett's outrage at the idiocy of other people. He manages to be self-righteous without being pompous, perhaps because of his attitude that any ordinary person could follow his example if they chose.
