About the Author:
Sir John Templeton known for his astute investment skills on Wall Street and through the Templeton Mutual Funds, has been described as arguably the greatest global stock picker of the twentieth century.
Sir John Templeton lays out the twenty-one guiding principles by which he governed both his professional and personal life. These principles are grounded in virtues that he considered important enough to be considered as “laws of life”- they include honestly perseverance, thrift, enthusiasm, humility, and altruism. Templeton hoped with this book, that sharing his principles would inspire others to seek their own laws of life, formulate their own plans, and find happiness on a scale exponentially greater than his own.
