Summary

What makes us happy? Bill Bailey plays crazy golf and hugs trees to find out.

Is there a knack to being happy? From paddle-boarding down the Thames in a Santa hat, to wild swimming in a glacial river and cooking sausages on a campfire, Bill revels in the exhilaration of the outdoors, as well as the quieter pleasures of letter-writing, or of simple reflection.

In this beautiful and uplifting audiobook, Bill Bailey explores all this and more while delving into the nature of happiness, all in his own, remarkable, way.

Packed with wisdom and humour, Bill Bailey aims for the heart of pure joy and contentment—and how we can all achieve it.

Love it 💜

Absolutely loved this book, can't recommend it highly enough. Always been a Bill Bailey fan and he knocked this one out of the park. Even better as an audiobook because he is reading his own words. Fantastic comedian!

Excellent!

A very good listen. Listened to the first 5 chapters before going on a camping weekend with friends then listened to the rest on the drive back with my partner, we both thoroughly enjoyed it and are big fans of Bill. I like to think that listening to it and reflecting on the weekend camping and correlating similarities to the weekend and the subjects raised in the book, our outlook on life in general has brightened for a while and helped us confirm what life's really about. Would highly recommend to anyone of any age or background. Very feel good.
