Hector and the Search for Happiness by Francois Lelord

Once upon a time there was a young psychiatrist called Hector who was not very satisfied with himself...

Hector is very good at treating patients in need of his help. But he cant do much for those who are simply dissatisfied with life, and that is beginning to depress him. When a patient tells him he looks in need of a vacation, Hector takes a trip around the world to learn what makes people happy—and sad. As he travels from Paris to China to Africa to the United States, he lists his observations about the people he meets. Is there a secret to happiness, and will Hector find it?

Combining the winsome appeal of The Little Prince with the inspiring philosophy of The Alchemist, Hectors journey ventures around the globe and into the human soul. Lelords writing inspires us to consider lifes great questions. Uplifting, empowering, and optimistic, this is a fable for our times and all time.

So he decides to up and travel the world to try and find out what makes people happy. He comes across many different people from all walks of life and asks them the all-important question — what makes you happy? To know how he discovered them I encourage you to read the book or watch the movie adaptation which stars the brilliant Simon Pegg but in all I think that they help to sum up the notion of happiness and what happiness should mean to us — what do you think? I would love to make this journey -and have others share their vast knowledge -loving and learning, all in one fascinating trip. Life was intended to be touched. Interesting read, thanks for sharing!

The book is about Hector, a successful young psychiatrist, who wants to know what happiness really means. He begins doubting himself which eventually resulted in him questioning his own happiness then he started to become depress. Taking the advise from one of his patients, he set off and took a holiday. No country was mentioned as to the countries that Hector visited but based on the description of the places that he visited, the first is probably somewhere in China, then a country in Africa and some place in the Americas. His first stop is somewhere in China where he plans to consult an old monk about his search.
