Hector is a quirky psychiatrist who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life.
The book follows Hector on his journey across the world to different countries. The book is a simple story about a psychiatrist who travels the world looking for the basis of happiness in different cultures
The book follows Hector on his journey across the world to different countries. During his trip he meets many people - Hector is a friendly kind of guy and strikes up conversation with anyone, from a monk to a gangster. He learns something from everyone that he meets - and compiles a list of things that make people really happy. The book is a simple story about a psychiatrist who travels the world looking for the basis of happiness in different cultures. The author - a real psychiatrist - comes off as preachy and patronising to the reader, making assumptions that the average person doesn't understand basic terms and situations encountered in the course of Hector's travels.
Though the book is an international bestseller, it is far less a novel than a maudlin self-help guide that substitutes pat aphorisms for development.
