It is a practical book filled with recipes for living a good (moral) life and achieving success—a self-help book. The richness of the Essays lie in their relevancy, even in the 21st century. In Essay 34 — Of Riches, he says: "There's no real use for great riches, unless it is in the distribution".

What appears on the surface to be a simple remark, it contains a profound truth: we can only become wealthy if we think of others. This was true during Bacon's times as well as our time; to wit: the legacies of Bill Gates and Warren Buffett. Concerning income inequality he wrote: "The matter of seditions is of two kinds: much poverty, and much discontentment", adding "And if this poverty and broken estate in the better sort, is joined with a want and necessity in the middle class, the danger is imminent and great.

For the rebellions of the belly are the worst". Bacon saw the great concentration of wealth in a few individuals as a danger to the nation: "Above all things, good policy is to be used, that the treasure and moneys, in a nation, be not gathered into few hands. For otherwise a state may have a great stock, and yet starve.

And money is like muck, not good except it be spread". The accumulation of 95% of the wealth of the United States to the top 1% of individuals is causing the starvation of 45 million Americans.
