The Geography of Bliss

The Geography of Bliss

Eric Weiner

Overview

Happiness is often our ultimate goal. While we speak about finding happiness as if it were a destination, we don't typically discuss why certain parts of the world are happier than others.

In The Geography of Bliss, seasoned traveler, author, and journalist Eric Weiner visits the world's happiest places. After some time perusing the World Database of Happiness in the Netherlands, Weiner puts together an 'atlas of bliss.' His travels take him to all corners of the globe, where Weiner spends time living as a local and interacting with professionals, residents, and expats.

While exploring some of the world's happiest places, and one very unhappy nation, Weiner records his travel experiences and the wisdom he picks up along the way.

"Our happiness is completely and utterly intertwined with other people: family and friends and neighbors and the woman you hardly notice who cleans your office."
