Canadian Edition of The World's Best Retirement Book

I received this e-mail the other day:

    Hi there,

    I was wondering if there are two versions of your retirement book - Canadian and American. I'd love to purchase a copy of the Canadian version (if there is one). If not, does VIP sell copies via email? None of the local bookstores seem to have a copy, and Amazon has a two week waiting period.

    Thank you!

This was my reply:

    Hello Jerry:

    Actually, there are a Canadian version and an American version of How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free. The two editions are the same except for the cover.

    Unfortunately, retirees would have ten times the chance of finding a copy of the book in a Barnes and Noble store in the U.S. as they would in a Chapters store in Canada.

    (This is typical of Canadians who won't support Canadians but will support Americans; I won't get into this, however.)

    I sell copies of the book directly to people but I don't accept Visa. For example, just this last week the University of British Columbia Pension Fund ordered 25 copies of How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free but they are paying me by cheque.

    The problem with you sending me a cheque is that you will still have to wait about two weeks from the time you send the cheque to me, the time I receive it, and the time it takes for me to send you the book.

    If you would like to do this, the price will be $20 plus GST plus about $3 for shipping for a total of $24.00. If you would like two copies, then send a total of $40.00.

    Make the cheque out to "Ernie Zelinski" and send to:

    As an aside, here is the promo about the book that I send to companies:

    Just a reminder that a happy retirement is dependent on a number of factors as detailed in my book How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free (Retirement Wisdom That You Won't Get from Your Financial Advisor).

    This book has already sold over 120,000 copies and has been published in 8 foreign languages since it was released.

    Conduct a search for "retirement" or "retire" on and How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free appears in the number 1 position. Better still, search for "retirement book" in Google and the Amazon page for How to Retire Happy appears in the number 1 spot — out of over 29 million webpages!

    What sets this retirement book apart from all the others is its holistic approach to the fears, hopes, and dreams that people have about retirement. This international bestseller goes way beyond the numbers that is often the main focus of retirement planning in most retirement books.

    There are many ingredients of a happy retirement and several retirement planning tools that help retirees plan for their retirement in new and more meaningful ways. One of the most powerful tools is The Get-a-Life Tree that you won't find in any other retirement books.

    I have attached the E-book (in PDF format) with over half of How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free that is available as a free download on the Creative Free E-Books Webpage at the Real Success Resource Center.

    I have also attached the PowerPoint Slide that indicates the benefits that your company can attain by giving away copies of The World's Best Retirement Book.

    Please feel free to forward both the E-book and Slide to any of your colleagues, friends, and clients who may be interested in using this book as a gift for retiring employees or clients.

    Many thanks and so long for now,
