A compilation of funny, personal, and meditative essays about happiness by national treasure Bill Bailey, fully illustrated by Bill Bailey himself.
What makes us happy? Is there a knack to it? Is it the joy of playing a round of crazy golf, or of just being in a forest?
In this beautiful and uplifting book, Bill Bailey explores all this and more while delving into the nature of happiness, all in his own, remarkable, way.
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.
Packed with wisdom and humour, and with delightful illustrations by the comedian himself, Bill Bailey aims for the heart of pure joy and contentment - and how we can all achieve it.
