Now a new series on Peacock with Rainn Wilson, THE GEOGRAPHY OF BLISS is part travel memoir, part humor, and part twisted self-help guide that takes the viewer across the globe to investigate not what happiness is, but WHERE it is.

Are people in Switzerland happier because it is the most democratic country in the world? Do citizens of Qatar, awash in petrodollars, find joy in all that cash? Is the King of Bhutan a visionary for his initiative to calculate Gross National Happiness? Why is Asheville, North Carolina so damn happy?

In a unique mix of travel, psychology, science and humor, Eric Weiner answers those questions and many others, offering travelers of all moods some interesting new ideas for sunnier destinations and dispositions.

I liked this book. It wasn't difficult to listen to mainly because of the narrarator. He was funny and the writer never made it boring. It's a true journey for happiness. The thing I liked most is that he traveled to the place where people were more unhappy and actually made the most out of it. He looked at life from every angle and appreciates the little things in life. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that enjoys books about travel.
