I usually avoid non-fiction, or I intend to read it and never actually get around to doing it, but then one day a patron arrived at my desk, plopped this book down and said, “You have to read this book.” Um, ok, I guess. I casually picked it up and it did look like it might be good, so I took it home and, after procrastinating for a while, picked it up and started reading. From the very first chapter I was sold. The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner is a travel book combined with a quest for happiness. Weiner travels to the reportedly happiest countries on earth to try to learn their secrets. He tells the tales of these countries with respect, but also a touch of good old American skepticism. This is a funny book that will entertain you and maybe make you think just a little. Don’t procrastinate: you have got to read this book.
