Eric Weiner has traveled to nearly 60 countries around the world as an international correspondent for National Public Radio. The stories he has covered have taken him to some of the world's least happiest places like war-town Iraq and Afghanistan. However, a few years ago, Weiner set out on a personal quest to visit some of the world's happiest countries. His findings are presented in his best selling book, The Geography of Bliss: One Grump's Search for the Happiest Places in the World. As both a travelogue and self-improvement experience, Weiner's journey took him to India, Thailand, Great Britain, Switzerland, Iceland, and of course back home to the United States. In an interview with WSIU's Jak Tichenor, Weiner discusses how his travels offered him personal insights into how happiness and wisdom can be found in the least likely of places.
