A few years ago Eric Weiner, a long-time correspondent for National Public Radio (NPR) and a self-described grump, traveled around the world in search of the happiest places. See what country came in first. There are many surprises! Click here to go to Weiner's website, where you can learn how/why he conducted this study and what he discovered. Go to his appearances link on his website to hear his podcast interviews. Here's one of his interviews.
