Dear Dan,

In your book you say "Take 6 weeks of vacation, no matter what."
My boss would fire me if I did. Which probably wouldn't contribute too much to my happiness.

However, that being said, I thought you touched on many things that really do contribute to thriving during your life. I particularly was interested in a point you didn't cover-- the differing medical philosophies of those in Denmark and the US. That wasn't quite the point of your book. I did find it to be a potentially relevant point, though.

Your stats were intriguing and your interviews also. In sum, I thought it was an above average book that just missed a couple of points(see first paragraph).

Keep up the interesting work,

There were so many eye-opening examples of what other cultures value and how it makes each of them happy in their own way. This National Geographic journalist visits (and then highlights) 4 cities where people are ranked the happiest in the world and then uses those examples to give the reader suggestions of implementation.

If you enjoy reading about different cultures, it's a must! ( )

Heard the author on NPR, thought the book sounded interesting. It turned out pretty shallow but kinda interesting. He talks briefly about various studies on happiness, details, again briefly, interviews with experts on the topic, then looks at several places that studies have shown have the happiest residents. Copenhagen, Singapore, Mexico, and San Luis Obispo in California. It was a fast read. Nothing earthshaking or startling to learn. Don't think I'd especially recommend it to a library patron. ( )

There has been a recent surge in books looking at how locale affects happiness and this was a very interesting read. This book looks at four areas around the world where the people are not only happy, but they thrive. Each area has very different characteristics that make the people happy, but at the end of the book they see what similarities are involved. Then there are tips that can be incorporated into your own life, since it is unlikely that the reader will be moving to one of this thriving places. There are six areas that get focused on; community,workplace, social life, financial life, home, and self. Each area has suggestions for improving the quality of life. Not all of the suggestions are easily achievable, but the information is interesting anyway. Definitely worth scanning through, even if your not up for reading cover to cover. ( )

More of a skimming book, though even the bits I read more closely made for quick reading. Looks at the happiest places (Denmark, Singapore, northeastern Mexico, San Louis Obispo, CA) and tries to draw lessons for the rest of us. Some of the more interesting ones from the end: community--limit the workweek & encourage walkability; workplace--enjoy happy hour; social life--join a club, create a moai, & reconnect with faith; financial life--invest in experiences; home--meditation space, flow room, pride shine; self--find hobby, volunteer ( )
