Let’s end this week highlighting a new book by ModelingAndControl.com’s Greg McMillan. The book, The Funnier Side of Retirement for Engineers and People of the Technical Persuasion, is a very funny look at those entering their golden, post-work years.
When I saw this news on my DeltaV News RSS feed, I rushed up to Greg’s office to see if I could get my hands on one of the books, which I did (score!) I’m a big fan of Greg’s top ten lists, his marriage of humor and our technical world of process control and of course the illustrations by Ted Williams.
As Greg mentions in his post about the book, Now for Something Completely Different:
About every year since 1985, I wrote a book whether I needed to or not. Some of the books were written to entertain myself and hopefully others by adding a humorous view point to what is normally a very a serious profession.
Imagine writing a book a year for over 20 straight years… wow! And I think a few blog posts a week are tough…
For his older books where Greg has received back the copyrights, he’s generously offered these free to the world on the Modeling and Control blog. You can get a sample of this humor and fun illustrations in the eBook, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Control Room.
My guess is that you’ll enjoy this book whether you’re approaching these golden years yourself or even if not.
