I got about half way through this book before realizing it hadn't actually given me any concrete suggestions about what to do with my time. A lot of it was "you TOO can live a great retired life!" but never got around to telling me how to do it. Just how great it would be when I did! Maybe the book gets better at the end, but I realized I didn't trust the author enough to get anything of value out of it. ( )

You know, despite the overwhelming feeling that this book is really written for people in careers making well over 50,000 dollars a year and NOT for the working poor (which is essentially what we are), I enjoyed this book and it echoed a LOT of what I’ve been feeling and trying to express over the least two or three years. I got it from the library, it was not actually the book I was looking for, and it was not really what I was expecting, but I enjoyed it non-the-less and think I would like to own my own copy of it! I’m glad I took the time to read it instead of just shooting it back off to the library. ( )

Some of the main point of The Joy of Not Working include:
1. Unemployment is a time to build some real character. Being an optimist when economic times are good doesn't count.
2. Getting fired is nature's way to telling you that you had the wrong job in the first place.
3. Like The Bible, The Joy of Not Working ( by Ernie Zelinski) tells you everything you need to know to resolve your Life crisis, but doesn't exclude humor in its presentation. Check Chapter 7, "Lighting the Fire Rather than Being Warmed by It", pages 118-120, for a list of 200 activities for your consideration. (This comes from Helga Roberts writing on AuthorsDen.com)
4. Retirement is the beginning of life and not the end.
5. After reading The Joy of Not Working several times, my favorite chapter is Financial Independence on Less than $6,000.

In a word The Joy of Not Working is enjoyable. It is an easy, fun read, and at times it is rather humorous. Some of the tips outlined in the book are very practical. Others however, are not. At the very least, this book offers some good advice on scaling back, and making career and money less intrusive in your life. ( )
