    A clothier and a deeply religious man, Joseph Ryder faithfully kept a diary from 1733 until his death, two and a half million words later, in 1768. Interpreted here by Matthew Kadane, the diary contains reflections on Ryder's family life, religion, society and his state of mind; but as an entrepreneur in Leeds, his observations also give a real-life perspective on the relationship between capitalism and Protestantism and what life was like during the transition to modern capitalist society.
