Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Pulled from his autobiography, this entertaining and thought-provoking book explores the innovative management principles Franklin pioneered and reveals how today's business owners and managers can use those principles effectively.

A number of business books have been written in the past few years culling business advice from well-known historical figures ranging from Attila the Hun to, more recently, Machiavelli. To my knowledge, this is the first book to profile an actual businessperson. Before he became a patriot and Founding Father, Benjamin Franklin was a manager. This information comes as a surprise to many people but Franklin succeeded in the business arena long before he succeeded in the political or scientific arena.

The American economy is the strongest on the planet and I believe that much of this success can be attributed to how Franklin shaped American business culture in its early years. Andrew Carnegie, Lee Iacocca, Stephen Covey, and Warren Buffet have all acknowledged a debt to Franklin. If you want to learn more about the initiative, self-management, and innovation that are at the core of the American management model, this book is for you. Franklin was the first great American business success story and he still offers a great deal of wisdom for modern businesspeople.
