PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Geography of Bliss: One Grump's Search for the Happiest Places in the World Weiner spent a decade as a foreign correspondent reporting from such discontented locales as Iraq Afghanistan and Indonesia Unhappy people living in profoundly unstable states he notes inspire pathos and make for good copy but not for good karma So Weiner admitted grump and self help book aficionado undertook a year s research to travel the globe looking for the unheralded happy places The result is this book equal parts laugh out loud funny and philosophical a journey into both the definition of and the destination for true contentment .
Apparently the happiest places on earth include somewhat unexpectedly Iceland Bhutan and India Weiner also visits the country deemed most malcontent Moldova and finds real merit in the claim .
But the question remains What makes people happy Is it the freedom of the West or the myriad restrictions of Singapore The simple ashrams of India or the glittering shopping malls of Qatar From the youthful drunkenness of Iceland to the despond of Slough a sad but resilient town in Heathrow s flight path Weiner offers wry yet profound observations about the way people relate to circumstance and fate .
Both revealing and inspirational perhaps the best thing about this hilarious trip across four continents is that for the reader the geography of bliss is wherever they happen to find themselves while reading it
