A Field Guide to Happiness: What I Learned in Bhutan about Living, Loving, and Waking Up is a practical and inspirational guide to living more simply and in balance. From her experiences as an American writer and teacher living in Bhutan, Linda Leaming shares endearing, often humorous stories that contain deeper lessons, including:

  • There are no accidents
  • Look for magic everywhere
  • Generosity is contagious
  • Kindness will save us
  • Laugh in the face of death
  • You are who you are
  • Learn to be water

Having spent her early years in Nashville, and most of her adult life in Thimphu - two wildly different and unique cities in their own right - Linda has been forced to think differently about time, work, money, family, and herself. Instead of fuming impatiently in line at the bank, she decided to take up knitting. By calming down and going with the flow, she has learned to relax and embrace the absurdity that is everywhere. And facing her own mortality - thinking the unthinkable - has inspired her to live life to the fullest, with ease, fearlessness, and, believe it or not, laughter. A special section at the end of each chapter gives concrete steps for creating more happiness in our lives.

A Field Guide to Happiness is an intriguing, honest, and entertaining look at life, and the quest to find happiness, no matter where you are.
