Any poor soul who has been on a family vacation of a week or more knows what an utter relief it is to get back home – how happy one is to simply be there, of all possible places. Mr. Weiner utilizes, in this book, “the emerging field of positive psychology”, and still comes up with the same answer. That's despite all of his “work-related” (and therefore tax-deductible) travels all over the world, visiting with various peoples. Um, I'm sure it's truly hard work, such an ambitious project. (Let's leave it at that, shall we?) . Need I say more? . .

Special thanks to Hachette Book Group for the chance to review Mr. Weiner's travel book. For information on other books offered or about to be offered by HBGUSA, please visit their website.
