What Is Happiness, and Where Do I Find It

October's Book of the Month "Hector and the Search for Happiness", while technically a novel, is also an exploration into what makes people happy- a self-help novel, if you will.

Hector is a psychiatrist who is at a crossroads in his life. He is single, working in a profession where people who seem to have everything are constantly unhappy, and he is unsatisfied with himself. He decides to take a trip around the world, meeting old friends and new acquaintances, trying to understand what makes people happy.

From Paris to China, Africa to the United States, Hector makes observations and speaks with people, making a list of about what makes them happy. Along the way he spends an evening with a beautiful woman, befriends a drug lord, is kidnapped by a third world gang, and shares his findings with a world renowned professor.

Hector and the Search for Happiness” is an international bestseller that is part novel, part self help guide. Optimistic and simple, it is a book that highlights what you may already know about being happy, but might have forgotten.
