Well-written and chic. Like a smartly-dressed citizen of the world. I'm both envious and annoyed by Eric Weiner's search for the happiest places in the world. Annoyed because it's an obvious flaunt of luxury and resources, and envious for the same reasons.

Parts of the book were very interesting and other parts were a bit boring. The author wrote with wit and humour, although the humour was the cheap college style jokes at times.

After covering wars, disasters, and other catastrophes for more than two decades, Weiner wanted a lighter, happier assignment. His search for the happiest places on earth take him to Iceland, Bhutan, Switzerland, India, and other locales. He learns that neither income nor diversity guarantees happiness. As a self-described, self-help book junkie, Weiner has a keen eye for life's absurdities despite cultural norms.
