Ernie's latest retirement book is The Joy of Being Retired: 365 Reasons Why Retirement Rocks — and Work Sucks!. It is a little different than his two international bestselling retirement books How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free and The Joy of Not Working that have sold over 700,000 copies. Ernie combines cartoon images, humor, and wisdom to provide plenty of reasons (415 in all — not only 365) to sit back, put up your feet, and use the power of creativity to get the most out of your retirement life.
