Just found this article from 3 years ago that details Brooks's life and success

“Who coined retirement, anyway?” said the 66-year-old Brooks. “Who coined 40 hours? I’m just not a goof-off person. I like building things. Have a little fun. That’s what it’s all about.”

I wish I could have had a beer with Mr. Brooks.
