商品の説明

内容紹介

What makes a nation happy? Is one country's sense of happiness the same as another's? In the last two decades, psychologists and economists have learned a lot about who's happy and who isn't. The Dutch are, the Romanians aren't, and Americans are somewhere in between...

After years of going to the world's least happy countries, Eric Weiner, a veteran foreign correspondent, decided to travel and evaluate each country's different sense of happiness and discover the nation that seemed happiest of all.

·He discovers the relationship between money and happiness in tiny and extremely wealthy Qatar (and it's not a good one)
·He goes to Thailand, and finds that not thinking is a contented way of life.
·He goes to the tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, and discovers they have an official policy of Gross National Happiness!
·He asks himself why the British don't do happiness?

In Weiner's quest to find the world's happiest places, he eats rotten Icelandic shark, meditates in Bangalore, visits strip clubs in Bangkok and drinks himself into a stupor in Reykjavik. Full of inspired moments, The Geography of Bliss accomplishes a feat few travel books dare and even fewer achieve: to make you happier.

レビュー

"Part travelogue, part personal-discovery memoir and all sustained delight, this wise, witty ramble reads like Paul Theroux channeling David Sedaris on a particularly good day...Fresh and beguiling."" (Kirkus Reviews)

5つ星のうち 5.0 An elegant and genuine piece of work 2017/1/5
投稿者 Abdurrahman - (Amazon.com)
Amazonで購入
Beautiful, entertaining, and full of practical wisdom. A blend of biography, geography, and culture along the lines of humorous story telling.

Eric, just like in his newer book "Geography of Genius", doesn't offer you a recipe or a framework for his findings. He handholds you and takes you in a journey to discover things on your own. Yes, he tells you what he believes and finds, but you don't necessarily reach the same conclusions. You are free to wonder and come up with your own perspective.

I enjoyed every bit of it!

5つ星のうち 5.0 "Researchers have found that people, sane people at least, rarely smile when alone." 2016/3/26
投稿者 Wanderlust - (Amazon.com)
Amazonで購入
I guess this book made me insane cause I smiled and laughed a lot while I read it. I was also amused while reading some of the negative reviews. People actually read this book thinking it would answer the age old question of what is happiness. That's not what you'll find. However the author's vast knowledge of both centuries old and modern day literature, art, and science on the subject is impressive.

It's a good, light read, intelligent and witty. It's critics seem to be those that expected him to explore every aspect of every culture he visited and come to profound conclusions. Instead he engages the reader with a breadth of knowledge on the studies of happiness, while making humorous cultural observations, and interviewing a wide scope of humans to get their observations on happiness.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Unorthodox approach to define happiness, both humorous and thought-provoking 2013/1/30
投稿者 Diamonds - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
O M G: did not have that good a laugh in reading for a long time. What a wonderful sense of humor ! Don't understand the negative reviews, except for the fact that people maybe take themselves a little too seriously (or are just too grumpy)? And I'm glad I don't know 'Bryson' either ! I try to ration myself to a chapter / country a day. Would definitely read thru on an intercontinental flight. Combine an unorthodox approach to a search for what make people happy (clarification; not necessarily the author himself !!), with a knack for humor to immediately disarm the potential seriousness and possible pretense of the search, and you go page by page, from observation to observation, stopping at a thought, pretty much like the tasting of a good wine, but a different one all the time. He happens to visit a country I'm well familiar with because of my being born and growing up there, and I can tell you, Eric Weiner totally cracks me up, and if you read between the lines, gets it right at the same time, somehow ! Trying to define what 'Happiness' might mean in each case, and by adding the various perspectives up, allows the reader to explore the subject with him, at every step along the way. Scepticism is immediately balanced with relativity and humor, and the realization that he needs to keep himself 'open' and 'floating' in his search. I could go on and on, but will not; see for yourself; this book is so hilariously well-written, that it can induce the very state it is trying to define, in the reader ! Enjoy !

5つ星のうち 5.0 " Lots of great info to "drop" into conversations too😉 2016/7/16
投稿者 KathyJ - (Amazon.com)
Amazonで購入
This book was both enlightening and hilarious...a rare combination! I laughed out loud many times throughout the book. My husband kept asking "Why are you laughing?" to which I replied, "You'll just have to read it!" Lots of great info to "drop" into conversations too😉. I may even visit Iceland, something I thought I would never do! I highly recommend this book!

5つ星のうち 3.0 Mixed Enjoyment 2013/12/7
投稿者 Catriona Erler - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
Interesting read, but I wish I had got the book from the library. It's not a book I need to own. Some of the chapters (one for each country the author focuses on) are fascinating, but I found in the chapter on Slough, a city near London best known for being the location of Heathrow International Airport, irritating. I know Britain well, and have passed through Slough frequently. As a result, the author's quips that were meant to be clever and funny came across to me as silly. It made me wonder if I would respond similarly to his essays on other countries if I had known more about them as well.
