This week I’m featuring a book from Bruce Northam—a friend and frequent contributor—that I somehow have never written up on the site. “The Directions to Happiness: A 135-Country Quest for Life Lessons” was published back in 2014 to great reviews, including this one from Travel + Leisure: “By the end of the book, you like the author, you believe him, and you’ve had a fun ride–because this is no namby-pamby travelogue.”
The book is a collection of stories and reflections from Bruce’s travels through 135 countries. His energy, open-mindedness, and approach to life and travel shine through the pages (just at they do on the walking tours he leads through NYC’s Lower East Side). Check it out!
Grab it: Grab “The Directions to Happiness: A 135-Country Quest for Life Lessons” by Bruce Northam on Amazon for $14.99.
