Splendid Portrait of Bhutan 9 juin 2014
Par Mark P. Anielski - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Madeline Drexler paints a wonderful portrait of the complexities of Bhutan and its efforts to advance a new economic paradigm (Gross National Happiness) based on well-being and happiness, at home and abroad. Just as the United States of America has learned how difficult it to live up to the ideals of 'life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness' (contained in the US Declaration of Independence, penned by Thomas Jefferson), so has Bhutan experienced its own trials and tribulations in living up to the ideals of Gross National Happiness. Drexler's book reminds us all that in the end happiness is a personal choice even if governments can help create the conditions for personal happiness to flourish.

As an economist specializing in measuring well-being and author of The Economics of Happiness: Building Genuine Wealth, I can attest to the challenges faced in advancing this new economic paradigm based on well-being and happiness. I am reminded that happiness, if defined in the original Greek eudaimonia, means 'well-being of spirit.' Measuring spiritual well-being will undoubtedly remain illusive if not impossible.

Drexler's book provides the reader with one of the most insightful views into this fascinating Buddhist kingdom, particularly the challenges Bhutanese now face with increasing materialism as it has opened up to Western economic influences.

Drexler's surmized lessons from Bhutan's experiment with Gross National Happiness are appropriate for all those who are currently engaged in trying to advance a new economic model based on well-being and happiness in the US, Canada, Europe and other developed nations. We are reminded that the pursuit of happiness is not always as easy as one might believe.

An exquisitely beautiful book 3 avril 2014
Par Rocky Ricewing - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Drexler tells the story of Bhutan's unique experiment in elucidating and prioritizing Gross National Happiness (GNH). She tells it through dozens of interviews with citizens, Buddhists, and government officials. Even better, the tale is transmitted through beautiful narrative passages describing Bhutan's culture and traditions. It is almost inconceivable that a monarchy would voluntarily and on its own initiative cede power to democracy, and that that government would be accountable to quantify and measure GNH. As Bhutan now modernizes and confronts the globalization challenges of the 21st century, I can only hope that GNH remains front and center in its priorities.

Fascinating book, unexpected soul searching topics 24 février 2014
Par pin88goi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
The ideas, ideals, morals, opinions and attitudes explored in this book are wonderfully engaging on multiple levels. Gross National Happiness is such an unusual and different concept compared to the USA culture of consumerism that this idea is striking, and humbling. The idea that it is wrong to take honey away from the bees that produced it at first struck me as funny, and then the deep insight and wisdom of this concept started to sink in, and I was once again humbled by the pure simplicity of the truth of this belief. All and all, this was a really fun book to read, and it had totally unexpected concepts that I hope to apply to my life.

Fascinating 25 mars 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book is a fascinating look into a little-known part of the world and spectacularly well written. It could have been a West-bashing, pro-GNH PR piece. Alternatively, it could have been a GNH tear-down. Instead, it is multifaceted, subtle, and designed to make us think. Highly recommended.
