"There has never been another like Ben Franklin. There will likely never be another Ben Franklin. Thus, no one can speak for Ben. But in Poorer Richard's America, author Tom Blair has written a pointedly clever, updated-for-today book that draws on the essence of Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanack to view America in 2011. He does this in the voice of Ben Franklin. Our Founding Father and Tom Blair share the enduring conviction that America was catapulted to greatness in 1776. However, things seem to be falling apart. From the National Deficit to Wall Street, from health care to marital bliss, our country is suffering"--Cover, p. 2.
