The Pursuit Of Happiness


The Happiness of Pursuit reveals how all of us can bring meaning into our life by undertaking a quest. When the author Chris Guillebeau set out to visit all of the planet’s countries, before he turned thirty-five, the compulsive goal-seeker in him never imagined that his journey’s biggest revelation would be how many people like himself exist — each pursuing a challenging quest. He ‘draws’ and celebrates in his perceptive book interviews with hundreds of such ‘questers,’ revealing their secret motivations, selection criteria, the role played by friends and family, their tricks for solving logistics, and their documentation — for happiness. An uplifting, un-put-down-able book.

This is a hidden paradise, which isn’t hard to find, but is so hard to leave, or truly difficult to forget. Call: 832-2274 491/2273 349/M: 099216 33339.
