Research Triangle Park, NC–

ISA

has announced the latest in Gregory K. McMillan’s collection of humorous cartoon books, The Funnier Side of Retirement for Engineers and People of the Technical Persuasion .

After McMillan, Stan Weiner, and illustrator Ted Williams co-authored The Life and Times of an Automation Professional– An Illustrated Guide, they teamed up to address retirement. The book’s preface notes, “Retirement is one of the big changes in life and what is best is not the same for everyone… it should be fun.”  The author says he believes retirement should be like a bowl of beer nuts where you stick your hand in and grab as much as you want.

According to ISA, readers will get a far-out look (or up-front stare if the company is headed for reorganization) into what retirement offers for “geeks.” Ted Williams’ cartoons act as a graphic expose. Engineers or technical people who are thinking about retiring, have already retired, suspect a career change, or just want a laugh should enjoy the book.
