Not sure I am thrilled with the federal government spending money we don’t have on measuring how happy and content the citizens are, but this article did remind me of one of my favorite and most interesting books. The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner! It is a compelling and thought provoking look at places around the world that claim to be the happiest on the planet. Eric Weiner’s portrayal of the people he encounters, food he eats, beverages he samples and the all around nature of these different cities is an absolutely hysterical page turner. Perfect Spring Break or summer vacay read. Who knows, maybe you will be reading it in one of the blissful locales featured in Eric’s book.
