More than 250 years ago, Founding Father Benjamin Franklin published "Poor's Richard's Almanack," a compilation of practical tips and words to the wise. His bestselling book spoke to the growing spirit of self-reliance and independence in America. Continuing in this tradition, the Poor Lab's Guide is an essential collection of pragmatic wisdom for the American laboratory.
