Dec 10, 2010

Who are the world's happiest people and what is their secret to happiness? Host Ben Kieffer talks with New York Times bestselling author Dan Buettner about his findings from a five-year global study on the keys to personal happiness. The National Geographic Society recently sent Buettner to a handful of places around the world where people experience the highest levels of satisfaction and well-being. In his new book, "Thrive," Buettner reports on his findings. He'll also tell us how to incorporate these characteristics into our daily lives.
