"Temperance? Humility? Frugality? Teresa Jordan spends a year trying to live Benjamin Franklin's list of thirteen virtues. Jordan offers a wry and intimate journey into a year in midlife devoted to the challenge of trying to live authentically. Through her explorations, we come to understand the ethics of time, the importance of mindfulness, and the profound societal cost of our contemporary epidemic of distraction."
