Re: Order ESRBob's Book, Help the forum!

Eagle,
Hope you're enjoying the read -- Nords did more than provide some good anecdotes --he came through with some pretty good posts during a rough patch I was having with the editor who wanted me to drop the last chapter --

Nords was the one clearly saying "a book on ER wouldn't be complete if you didn't give people some sort of vision about how life can be better once people have a lot more free time-- don't just make it a how-to book, make it a book that helps people dream big' Don't know how Nords feels about that Chapter as it finally turned out, but without his encouragement, there might not have been anything there at all.

You'll also find profiles of Brewer, Jarhhead (pseudonymously at their request) (and Bob Smith -- remember him?) Gayl and others, a house remodelling story from TH or whatever he's calling himself these days, and a bunch of other examples and stories from people who've been on the forum in the past but may not be posting so much now.

feel free to post any questions or comments -- there will be a new version sometime in the next few years and anything unclear or missing can be raised here and make it in the next go-round.

Great book, Bob.

Almost finished with it.* I think it has a lot of provacative thoughts, and hopefully can either prompt more folks to think through the possibilities or provide the final shove to take back our time as our own.

Two thumbs up.

Re: Order ESRBob's Book, Help the forum!

Thanks, Bow-Tie,
Glad you found the book useful. Just finished a day with by ESR brother and family (Chet on Page 11 of the book), in from California -- drilling a new hole for our dryer vent, putting the boat in the water for the season, debating educational reforms and the unintended consequences of No Child Left Behind--- Life is good after 20 years of almost never seeing each other because we were too busy working

Looks like Nords isn't around right now Lena, so here it is:

Buy ESRBob's ER Book

It is also conveniently located at the lower right corner of almost every page on the forum.

Or if you were referring to the link to make a donation to dory's camel collection account support the forum fund:

Re: Order ESRBob's Book, Help the forum!

I had made a recommendation for our library to buy, Work Less, Live More, a while back. I stopped in today and was browsing the new books and they bought it. I was so excited to see it there! My only dilemma is that I am halfway through, The Warrior Elite by Dick Couch, and we are leaving tomorrow to go to VA and I won't get to read as much as I want until next Wednesday! Whine, whine. Anyway, your book is in WV now.

I did an interlibrary loan request and got the book yesterday after a 2 month wait. It is from the Social Security Administration Library, wherever that is located. Brand spankin new copy too! Good, easy reading so far.

Dreamer and Justin,
Good stuff -- glad the book is finding its way into libraries. Enjoy the read and hope you find it useful.

I've committed to hunker down this Fall in front of the keyboard again and come up with a follow-on Workbook and CD to give people more hands-on tools to put a FIRE plan into action. Any and all suggestions welcomed -- favorite spreadsheet tools and other resources etc (you'll get acknowledgements for anything used) -- my email is here on my profile, or you can PM me here.

I'll keep that in mind as I make my way through the book. There's a good chance I'll be making/modifying a spreadsheet to consider some of the suggestions in your book.
