A FIELD GUIDE TO HAPPINESS  picks up where my first book, MARRIED TO BHUTAN: How One Woman Got Lost, Said 'I Do.' and Found Bliss, left off-- about four years ago when we began splitting our time between Bhutan in the Himalayas, and Nashville, which is so not in the Himalayas. We have perhaps the longest and most difficult commute in the history of the world. It's kind of crazy. But interesting. You'll find out how I am able to stay sane (mostly), what happened to Kinlay, how we laugh in the face of death, how to use a salad spinner instead of a washing machine, how to do a village man makeover, how not to tame a bull, and the many ways I learned to "simulate Bhutan" wherever I go. It's all in the wrist. 

Reviews are coming in!
