Short Takes: Franklin Electronic Publishers

Franklin Electronic Publishers recently made a bold statement regarding the educational value of its products by announcing its "Better Grades or Your Money Back" offer. So, a child whose grades don't improve after using a new Franklin handheld can simply return the product directly to Franklin for a full refund of the original purchase price. Details can be found online at or by calling 1-800-BOOKMAN.
