The Happiness of Pursuit is one of those books that makes you want to get up and do something with your life. Weather you want to go travel the world or just not be lazy at home, I think this book will give you the motivation and inspiration to do so.
Broken up into 3 parts and 17 overall chapters:

1. Beginnings
2. Journey
3. Destination

Chris Guillebeau first takes you through his wake up call/journey to sharing other people’s stories on pursuing a quest/going on a journey to how to do the same for yourself in starting your own journey or quest or even a goal.
I found the stories inviting and it was interesting to see how people of all kinds started on their own quest and get inspiration from them.
Each chapter ends with a “Remember” which points out the key tips, ideas and lessons in that chapter, which I love.
The book ends with a helpful appendix section which lists out the authors lessons he learned from his own journey/quest, a list of the “cast” and their quests,catagories and status now.
And “A quest for everyone” in which the author gives you ideas/examples on small adaptions of big quests for those not sure what their quests are and how to start.
All in all a good read, that inspired me to start my own quest… whatever that might be (still working on it).

Notice: I recieved a copy of this book thanks to Blogging For Books in exchange for my honest review. All of my opinions are my own.
