Gunn chronicles the 13 weeks he spent living by Benjamin Franklin''s 13 virtues. By turns heartfelt, hilarious, and more than a little humbling, Gunn''s adventure takes this ordinary man way outside his comfort zone and into a thicket of not-so-modern values.
From the Publisher:
Thirteen weeks. Thirteen virtues. || Cameron Gunn considered himself a regular guy-a pretty good husband, father, attorney, and friend. || But was there room for improvement? || A reader of history and a fan of Ben Franklin (and weary of self-help advice that never seems to offer much help), Gunn decided to try a little experiment. He would attempt to live by Franklin's thirteen virtues, a list of lofty ideals the Founding Father held dear, as enumerated in his famous autobiography. || Would Gunn's plan to improve his life, Citizen Ben-style, prove to be a brilliant reinvention of the self-help movement or a boondoggle of revolutionary proportions? || By turns heartfelt, hilarious, and more than a little humbling, Gunn's adventure takes this ordinary man way outside his comfort zone and into a thicket of not-so-modern values. The result is an engaging mix of humor and history-with perhaps a lightning bolt of inspiration or two along the way. || Prepare to get up close and personal with everyone's favorite Founding Father. || Temperance * Silence * Order * Resolution * Frugality * Industry * Sincerity * Justice * Moderation * Cleanliness * Tranquility * Chastity * Humility
