The Geography Of Bliss Analysis

Good Essays
Eric Weiner, the author of The Geography of Bliss, has found that happiness can be found in a multitude of ways. In his travels Weiner was exposed to many different cultures; and in his research, opened the possibility of a culture's effect on one's happiness. He explores this in his chapters discussing Qatar and Iceland. What I believe Weiner is telling us here, is that culture does not determine one's happiness, due to what he has found of the people and culture in both Qatar and Iceland.
Happiness found in Qatar is not from their culture. He had found personally that the Qataris were very happy people, due to their faith in God. When he asked a man if he was happy, he became uncomfortable, because they see happiness as being God’s will.
