Retirement Living Requires Experiencing The Joy of Not Working

I received this letter about The Joy of Not Working from Wayne M. (he did not give his last name like most letter writers) of Williamsport, PA, in August 2008.

    Dear Ernie:

    I just finished reading the revised edition of
    The Joy of Not Working and it has really helped me to "slow down" and appreciate the simpler things in life.

    The Get-a-Life Tree has also helped me out a lot because I now always have ideas of what to do with all of my spare time. I have been unemployed for awhile. I used to get bored and depressed because that's the way that society wants unemployed people to be, but I now have a renewed purpose — to enjoy life!

    I just wanted to thank you for this wonderful book before I return it to the library. Maybe sometime I will buy
    The Joy of Not Working so I can have it handy all the time.

    Thanks again for being there for all of us.


    Wayne M.
