In discussing the rationale behind the book, James Ward commented, "With our three girls, I want them to succeed like I feel we have with our financial future. We want to make sure that we are not a burden on them, and use those same teachings from Franklin’s virtues to help empower them to not be in debt or to be successful on whatever they want to pursue." It is a goal that Ward wanted readers of Wealth Virtues to consider for themselves. James and Danielle also discuss how the creation of wealth is simplistic, and the book wealth Virtues keeps simplicity in mind. James and Danielle also discuss how Can Franklins Virtues help us in modern day America in terms of saving and creating wealth.
Wealth Virtues outlines the practice of Dr. Franklin’s virtues of Temperance, Silence, Order, Resolution, Frugality, Industry, Sincerity, Justice, Moderation, Cleanliness, Tranquility, Chastity, and Humility as they apply to achieving wealth. The premise in which we begin to view wealth is simply the ability to acquire more money than you spend, and to save more than you owe. Wealth Virtues is a book that will help you to define and achieve your own wealth regardless of your current age or income level.
James Ward, who is also the proprietor of Poor Richard Web Press, describes how, For many people, 'wealth' is perceived as the amount of money required for one to live like a king. In his book Wealth Virtues, he redefines wealth as simply the goal of ‘acquiring more money than you spend, and to save more money than you owe.’
