What really makes us happy?
Professor Chandra is a stodgy, flawed, divorced father of three who is also a near miss for the Nobel Prize in Economics. What he isn't a near miss for is a hit-and-run accident that lands him in the hospital. Eager to return to his work and his import, his doctor tells him he really needs to get away from work because while the accident didn't kill him, the stress of his life is doing just that.
His doctor tells him to follow his bliss. Professor Chandra doesn't know it yet, but he's about to go on the journey of a lifetime.
Critics have praised this book and its main character, a loveable curmudgeon who goes on a journey to find his bliss, and maybe reconnect with his family along the way.
