Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Franklin conceived of this book at the age of 26 but never actually got around to writing it. In 1986, editor George Rogers completed the task by gleaning Franklin's thoughts on the subject from his various writings. We could all use a little virtue these days, so libraries would do well to stock this volume.

Review

"Perhaps more than any other 18th century notable, Franklin grappled with the 'codes of behavior' as they applied to the individual's place in the universe--how one might reach his or her potential for a meaningful existence in a world of uncertainty...I highly recommend the Art of Virtue to anyone concerned with self-improvement, or simply curious about what made Franklin tick." -- Roy E. Goodman, Curator, American Philosophical Society<br /><br />In 1732, at the age of 26, Benjamin Franklin conceived the idea of writing a guide for living that he named "The Art of Virtue". Although he nurtured this idea of a book for the next fifty years, Franklin never completed the work before he died. 250 years later, George Rogers discovered a set of Franklin's writings in an old mansion in Tarrytown, New York. Inspired by what Franklin had to say, and believing his ideas to be of general benefit to all people, Rogers researched and organized Franklin's writings into the book Franklin had intended to write. The rather impressive result is Benjamin Franklin's The Art Of Virtue. This compendium of the famous wit and wisdom of Ben Franklin is as apt today as it was in the colonial era of our nation's founding. Benjamin Franklin's The Art Of Virtue is appropriate reading (and study) for all ages, in all conditions and walks of life. Benjamin Franklin's The Art Of Virtue is a yet another of Benjamin Franklin's many treasured legacies to the American people. --Midwest Book Review
