About the Author

Chris Guillebeau is a writer, entrepreneur, world traveller and lifelong learner. Through his blog The Art of Non-Conformity he tries to help people live unconventional lives, make their own choices and change the world. He lives in Portand, Oregon.


Chris Guillebeau is a rare combination of sage and adventurer, and The Happiness of Pursuit is both a distillation of his wisdom and a demonstration of his - and others' - passion for the questing life. The passion Chris chronicles is infectious, and it becomes even more so as we read about life-focusing action delivering deep meaning. Even if you prefer never to leave your armchair, this book will inspire you to take a beautiful voyage - one that can be either physical or mental as you chase the thrill of steady accomplishment. -- Susan Cain, Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author of Quiet
The Happiness of Pursuit is smart, honest, and dangerous. Why dangerous? Because it is as practical as it is inspiring. You won't just be daydreaming about your quest - you'll be packing for it! -- Brene Brown, author of New York Times bestseller Daring Greatly
It's not easy to dream big - and it's not easy to turn that dream into reality. The brilliant Chris Guillebeau provides the essential blueprint for those of us for whom the happiness of pursuit - such as Chris's successful quest to visit every country in the world - is a key part of the pursuit of happiness -- Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project
If you like complacency and mediocrity, do not read this book. It's dangerously inspiring. It will make you want to do amazing things with your life. You may not end up visiting every country on Earth or directing a global protest from the top of a tree (I certainly won't), but Chris made me want to dive into an adventure. The Happiness of Pursuit is a how-to guide for avoiding a boring life. -- A.J. Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of The Know-It-All and The Year of Living Biblically
The incredible quests Chris Guillebeau explores in The Happiness of Pursuit, including his own to visit every country, left me feeling exhausted. Of course, as a person who works from home, I limit my quests most days to taking a shower. Bottom line: these stories are inspiring-and very, very entertaining." -- Joel Stein, columnist for Time magazine and author of Man Made: A Stupid Quest for Masculinity

Chris Guillebeau is a true Renaissance Man. In The Happiness of Pursuit he shows us how the power of a quest
can transform lives. Adventure comes in many forms, but having the courage to pursue one's true calling is what defines a life worth living. Guillebeau inspires readers to do just that, no matter whom they are or where their passions lie. This is a must-read for anyone seeking that spark of insight that will ignite the inner fire.
