Dan's look at various cultures' road to happiness has broadened my thinking and allowed me to explore the world from my comfy seat on the couch." -theminickadventures "In Malcolm Gladwell fashion, Buettner takes a stab at deconstructing a broad social concept, in this case, happiness, backing it up with tangible research, evidence, your own self-assessment and implementable strategies for exactly that: finding a greater happy." -Good and Grateful "It's a scientific approach to the subject, with concrete numbers and straight forward advice on how to nudge yourself into living a lifestyle that will ultimately make you happier."

And he's discovered a thing or two about what all these deliciously joyful people have in common...We are living in what may very well be one of the most dissatisfied periods in American history. But there is hope for happiness out there, and Dan shows us where to find it with intelligence, candor and lots of compassion." -Jathan & Heather "Such an awesome read! You know those books that you buy and read within the span of a few days because it is just that good?! ! Well that was the case with The Blue Zones of Happiness by Dan Buettner" --anxietycoachleigha
