The Happiest Places in the World

The Geography of Bliss: One grump's search for the happiest places in the world

Title: The Geography of Bliss: One grump's search for the happiest places in the world
By: Eric Weiner

Part travelogue, part memoir, part twisted self-help guide, this humorous ramble takes the reader around the world in search of the happiest places to live. NPR correspondent Eric Weiner discovers some surprises as he blends travel, psychology, science, and humor to ask not what happiness is, but where it is. His explorations take him to such varied locales as Bhutan, Qatar, Iceland, Switzerland, and Moldova, ending in America (not even in the top ten). While his conclusions may not be ground-breaking, his journey provides great fun and happiness for the reader.
