Just a few words:
- a hefty feel-good factor is present as appropriate
- some of it is useful, although not particularly original
- a times gets carried away into new-ageish drivel
- a lot of logical omissions (basically there's a big skip in the description and you find yourself asking, well, how did you get here?
- mediocre writing, frequently unclear and wordy
- some postulates are plainly ridiculous (due to the author's desire to steer clear from any controversy.) Example: people overwork because of work ethic, faulty upbringing, whatever, but it's always the people's fault, you see. Not that they can't afford med insurance or the kid's college w/o working extra, no that would be too damn politically controversial for this kind of wishy-washy book.
Overall, eh... I don't know. I guess it's no harm to read it, but I'm not particularly enthousiastic though. One has to admit that there is indeed a self-help book writing cabal, that people, no matter how rational, still keep on buying these books because, I guess, such is human nature that they endlessly look for help in that area. Thinking of it again, well, as a spiritual boost of temporary nature--this book may be worth its price. In terms of unversal socially redeemable value--it's not. I'd recommend getting it via your library first, or at least, peruse in a store. On the other hand, amazon has a great return policy <g>...

This is one of my all-time favourites! It was nothing less than a spiritual companion for me at a time when I had almost worked myself to death and radically jumped out of the treadmill. I found it both refreshingly funny and full of deep wisdom. Just reading it like a novel will give you so much pleasure that you'll find it already worth its price. However, if you let yourself carry away a little bit by its recommendations, you may soon find your life more interesting, colorful and blossoming! One could criticize this book for avoiding certain controversies (such as how to deal with the problem of being responsible for others) or the lack of practical solutions. But these allegations would miss the main point: Since the most important things in life cannot be taught anyway, you'll find the true inspiration between the lines. This unpretentious book doesn't promise quick-fixes but gently invites you to grow towards better life quality. Highly recommended!

This book would be much more effective if it gave practical advice like 'Your Money Or Your Life'. There is little advice on how you get from one financial situation to the other and assumes perfect health (no reliance on health insurance)and diverse talents (able to get money only as needed). If you are in less perfect health, definitely give this book to a younger, healthier person.

I read a book each week. Most are about retirement planning or how to become financially independent.
Whilst a lot of the material in this book is not new, it is nevertheless a book that I find that I am having second and third looks at quite a lot of pages from this book.
What many of us find difficulty with after 30 years of work is knowing what it is outside work that makes us happy. There are some very good sections in this book that help identify for you what it is you deep down really like doing. It seems silly that we need a book to help us with knowing that but a lifetime of the discipline of work does take away our abilities to dream, to imagine another world away from work and more importantly to survive after work is taken away from us either by retirement or retrenchment.
The section on the Leisure Tree hit a soft spot with me. This is a device to identify what leisure activities will give us the most pleasure.
This is a terrific book and a bargain buy at the price. If you have read Your money or your life, The Millionaire Next Door, Rich Dad, Poor Dad, Live Rich, Die Broke, you should read this book as well. It will help fill in some gaps the others leave.

This book deals with getting the most out of life. He does not proclaim to have all the answers but cuts a very broad swath. He deals with working too much, not developing your own interests, and the difficulty of your work being "who you are". I was 23 when I read this book, looking at retireing at 35. I was also reading many books on retireing early and living frugaly. I worked 100-110 hours a week and had no plans after retirement. I do now. I am happier than I ever was before. I no longer identify who i am with what I do. This is one of my favorite books. I have sent copies to all of my relatives and a few other people as well. If you buy it, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. The quotes alone are worth the purchase!

This self-proclaimed Dr. of Leisure has successfully
captured the true message of self-actualized leisure,wellness
and quality of life. As a certified, registerd recreation/leisure
professional, I was a little concerned at seeing E. Zelinski
claim this title without proper educational preparation.
After reading his book, I still wince at his claim to this title,
but also fully support his message and delightful delivery!
I recommend this book to all my clients who are temporarily
or permanently unemployed, retiring/retired or just plain
tired of the lack joy in their leisure and in their lives

Everyone should read this book as soon as possible -- not just the retired, the unemployed, and those otherwise without work. Even though this book confirms my beliefs of making the most of life and leisure, Ernie still manages to make me think some more. I have recommended this book to many of my family, friends, and former (since I have quit the corporate life too!) colleagues. Ernie makes it clear that there is more to life than a job, TV, and materialistic dreams. I'm buying 5 copies to give to family and friends!

There are a lot of great books that deal with creativity. This is not one of them. Average, at best, it might fit the bill is someone was looking for a superfluous treatment of creativity.

Es ist ein sehr guter Gedankenanstoß, wie unser Leben bunt verlaufen kann, ohne dass alles mit Arbeit verbunden sein muss.

For a bum, the author has some good ideas. While his assertions are not all totally logical and supported by juried references, they, for the most part, make sense. Quotations and clip art are excellent! Great reading, even if one is satisfied with his calling.
