      The Geography of bliss is a great book for people on the search for the meaning of happiness, or even the meaning of life, for that matter. I enjoy how Mr. Weiner takes you on a tour through ten countries to find out how people enjoy life in each one of them. I love his vivid descriptions of peoples’ lifestyles, from those of the haughty Swiss to those of the down-in-the-dumps Moldovan.

      This is a very


      rare book, pioneering in studies of happiness and in studies of culture. As we go, we learn about culture-rich Iceland, and then compare it to “oilngas” powered, culture-less Qatar. This book will truly teach you how to enjoy life and understand happiness, as well as learn about the histories of some of the most interesting places on Earth. I highly recommend every one of you to read this book, as it is a great inspiration ...

      • and a great piece of reading material, as long as you can get past the recreational smoking of marijuana.

        What really struck me at first about this book is the fact that the title has the word “Geography”. At first, I thought to myself, “Oh no, not another geography book,” but I was wrong. It is not an atlas, but a great piece of literature, and a great nonfiction novel. It will teach you that money

        can’t buy happiness, and that happiness is all around you. You just have to find it.

        The best part about the whole thing, however, is not that it is a good read, nor is it that it helps you understand happiness. In fact, it helps you search your own soul for your own happiness, and serves as a really great bowl of chicken soup for the soul when you’re down and blue. It’s really that wonderful.
