"the geography of bliss"
i was surprised by the places he visited ... i thought for sure Costa Rica would be among the happiest places ... he chose his places for varied reasons and includes his visit to the least happy country.
interspersed in his travel stories are studies and thoughts on happiness. it's a subject in which i'm interested (see also The Happiness Project), so i liked the book a lot. it wasn't very helpful for travel planning, but very useful for information on happiness to use in my lifeskills class and my life.
my source: my mother
my verdict: good non-fiction read
