More About the Author

ERNIE J. ZELINSKI
International Best-Selling Author
"Helping Adventurous Souls Live Prosperous and Free"

Ernie J. Zelinski is an international best-selling author, speaker, unconventional career expert, and prosperity life coach.

Ernie's core message - that ordinary people can attain out-of-the-ordinary results and make a difference in this world - is at the heart of his work. Ernie deeply believes in the powers of creativity and well-intentioned action as the most important elements for how ordinary individuals can attain personal prosperity and financial freedom.

Ernie is the author of the international bestsellers "The Joy of Not Working" (over 250,000 copies sold) and "How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free" (over 200,000 copies sold), two life-changing books that have helped hundreds of thousands of individuals around the world live more satisfying and happier lives.

Ernie's latest creative works include the Kindle edition of the inspirational novel "Look Ma, Life's Easy (How Ordinary People Can Attain Extraordinary Success and Remarkable Prosperity)" and its companion "Life's Secret Handbook (Reminders for Adventurous Souls Who Want to Make a Big Difference in This World)".

Thousands of individuals have contacted Ernie by phone, e-mail, and regular mail to let him know how they have experienced inner renewal and personal growth as a result of reading one or more of his blockbuster books.

Ernie has negotiated 111 book deals with publishers in 29 countries for his various creative works - which have now sold over 800,000 copies worldwide.

Ernie is uniquely qualified to write books such as "How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free", given that he opted for semi-retirement when he was only thirty years old and close to financial bankruptcy (with a net worth of minus $30,000).

Yet today Ernie is an international best-selling writer, entrepreneur, and prosperity life coach who maintains a three- to four-hour workday and doesn't like to work at all in any month that doesn't have an "r" in its name.

Ernie lives in Edmonton, where, besides hanging around his favorite coffee shops with his laptop, he enjoys running, cycling, reading, and traveling. Ernie's second home is Vancouver, B.C., which he visits five or six times a year.

Ernie speaks on the topics of early retirement, entrepreneurship, and creativity. The Turkish Society for Quality recently spent over $20,000 to have Ernie speak about "The Joy of Not Working" to 2,000 executives and scholars attending its 17th annual convention in Istanbul.

Format: Paperback
I'm a big fan of Ernie Zelinsky's work. I especially liked How To Retire Happy, Wild and Free and Real Success Without a Real Job. His strength is not in creating wild new ideas but in reminding us about the simple things in life and how enjoy and treasure them here and now. In his new book, 101 Really Important Things You Already Know, But Keep Forgetting, he does it again. It tells you right in the title you already know these things, but he has a simple, homespun style that is engaging and really makes you think. With 101 chapters of two pages each it's not something you read in one sitting; I have my copy on the nightstand with other books and read a few chapters at a time when I feel like getting a lift. Recommended.

101 Important Things You Already Knew But Keep Forgetting is one of the best inspirational books I have ever read. I bought 4 copies of these books as presents for the people in my life. The stories are short(two pages) and tell life like it is. This book is better than therapy! There is not one page of this book that doesn't have meaning to everyone's personal life experiences.

Format: Paperback
I share Ernie Zelinski's outlook on life. I love to hear about working less and more creatively. I agree with his advice to develop a life outside of work. I think The Joy of Not Working and Retire Wild, Happy, and Free are better examples of this attitude. This book has its moments but sounds more like a Get Rich or Become Successful self-help book. I thought he was catering more to the How to be a Millionaire crowd. He doesn't do this for every essay but is closer than some of his other books. I still give it 4 stars because I enjoy hearing whatever Ernie has to say.

Before reading this book, I had no idea who Ernie Zelinski was, but now that I have finished reading this book I will most likely read one of his other works. This book incorporates the ideas of some of the greatest philosophers in history along with important quotations into powerful ideas that apply to the modern world. You will find yourself saying "yes this is absolutely true" throughout the book as you're reading. For example the author introduces the 80/20 rule, which is an AMAZING theory/idea for effective results. I am a 20 year old college student. I have been suffering from depression and low results in my life, but after reading this book, I have noticed a tremendous difference in my thinking and life. Do yourself a favor, READ THIS BOOK.

This is not a book you sit down and read in one sitting from cover to cover because each of the 101 topics is a gem of wisdom that you will want to think about. I myself have bought this book for family members because it discusses some very important life lessons that are best learned by reading rather than experiencing in the world of hard knocks. I highly recommend this great book.

Format: Paperback
This book has the most down to earth advice that I have ever found in a book. I have read many books (self help, etc.) and many, MANY of the ideas in here can't be found any where else, or at least explained the way they are here any where else. I'm a fan of logic, and this book starts out with an idea, then through simple logic and examples explains how that idea is true. However, some can be unpopular, but that doesn't stop Ernie. Such as "51. It doesn't cost much to be kind, but it can be very costly being too kind." This mimics the idea I heard long ago from someone who "wanted to start a war on niceness." Let's face it, nice = manipulative in MOST cases. Being too nice makes you primed to become a victim to others. However, this isn't very popular advice in our "let's be nice to everybody" society.

I like 59., "You don't have to watch one minute of TV to be happy -- and perhaps you shouldn't." I don't own a TV (I have i-net of course) and I couldn't be more glad about it. NFL football season is the only reason I ever wish I had a TV, but the rest of the time I'M GLAD I DON'T HAVE ONE. Can you believe spending 3 hours a night doing nothing but staring into a light bulb? TV! When you watch your next sitcom, pay attention to how many times you REALLY laugh out loud. You probably only murmur a slight chuckle once every half-hour. But the studio audience is laughing hilariously -- at you for being a fool for watching so much TV! Try going to a live taping of a sitcom. Get's you out of the house and it really IS funny seeing it live!

BUY THIS BOOK. The ideas in this book will take you maybe a month to digest. But that's real work, isn't it? There should be a 102. "Go ahead, be dumb if you want to, nobody's stopping you." : )

I enjoyed this book just like other books by Ernie. LIke a reviewer said, reading this book is more like having a therapy. It offers great life wisdom and common sense everybody should learn and know in order to live a happy, successful life. Highly recommend it!

Format: Paperback
This was a book that I could read slowly, one two-page chapter at a time, and I found that soothing. Every chapter was a reminder of something I do already know but rarely think about. Ernie has a talent for capturing common sense and presenting it. I'm so tired of self-help books that lecture and scold. Ernie's books are a breath of fresh air. I recommend this book for anyone who needs a friendly and gentle boost.
