FEATURED BOOK OF THE MONTH
The Geography of Bliss: One Grump's Search for the Happiest Places in the World by Eric Weiner is the March title for the Featured Book of the Month. The author, a former NPR foreign correspondent, calls his book "a travelogue of ideas" and a "philosophical self-help humorous travel memoir." Weiner searches the world for the unheralded happy places, such as Iceland, Bhutan, Switzerland, India, and Thailand to name a few.
