A remarkable book that will both guide and inspire, The
Happiness of Pursuit
reveals how anyone can bring meaning into their
life by undertaking a quest.


When he set out to visit all of the planet's countries by age
thirty-five, compulsive goal seeker Chris Guillebeau never imagined that
his journey's biggest revelation would be how many people like himself
exist - each pursuing a challenging quest. And, interestingly, these
quests aren't just travel-oriented. On the contrary, they're as diverse
as humanity itself. Some involve exploration; others the pursuit of
athletic or artistic excellence; still others a battle against injustice
or poverty or threats to the environment.


Everywhere that Chris visited he found ordinary people working toward
extraordinary goals, making daily down payments on their dream. These
"questers" included a suburban mom pursuing a wildly ambitious culinary
project, a DJ producing the world's largest symphony, a young widower
completing the tasks his wife would never accomplish, and a teenager
crossing an entire ocean alone - as well as a do-it-yourselfer tackling
M.I.T.'s computer-science course, a nerd turning himself into real-life
James Bond, and scores of others writing themselves into the record
books.


The more Chris spoke with these strivers, the more he began to
appreciate the direct link between questing and long-term happiness --
how going after something in a methodical way enriches our lives -- and
he was compelled to complete a comprehensive study of the phenomenon and
extract the best advice. In The Happiness of Pursuit he draws on
interviews with hundreds of questers, revealing their secret
motivations, their selection criteria, the role played by friends and
family, their tricks for solving logistics, and the importance of
documentation.
