The Joy of the Pursuit

Chris Guillebeau's new book The Happiness of Pursuit: Finding the Quest That Will Bring Purpose to Your Life, was a very interesting book.  The author is a life traveler, business leader and motivator.  He believes each person should pursue what we really are called to do, instead of doing what is expected of us.  His approach was to travel and meet with people in short conversations to learn from them and share those nuggets with the reader. 

His goal was to visit every country on the planet.  He did this within 5 years.  The book includes stories about people he met on his journey.  He includes their successes and failures.  Part of the purpose of the book was to encourage the reader not to give up on the quests they have in life. 

This was an easy to read book.  At times the writing became a little old, some of the same being written over again.  But overall it was a very good book.  Hopefully it will inspire you to never give up on your quests to live life.  Note the title is not the pursuit of happiness, but it is the happiness in the pursuit.

"I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for this unabiased review."
