A series of philosophical bonnes bouches … their effect is unexpectedly cheering’ Independent ‘Even the most aloof, the most detached reader will be won over by this book’ Cosmopolitan ‘Provides a dollop of warm, fuzzy, feel-good escapism’ Woman ‘Intelligently naïve’ Marie Claire ‘A fast-paced, enchanting story. Lelord himself is a psychiatrist, and his interest in the human mind is infectious’ – Book Page "A feel-good gem . . . Francois Lelord has created a 21st-century hero." Good Housekeeping
About the Author
François Lelord studied and practiced psychiatry in Paris, and was a consultant for companies interested in reducing stress for their employees. The huge success of Hector and the Search for Happiness led him to spend more time writing and travelling, ending up in Vietnam during the Sars epidemic. There he practiced psychiatry for a French NGO and met his future wife Phuong. Today they live in Thailand. Hector and the Search for Happiness was adapted for film in 2015, starring Simon Pegg and Rosamund Pike.

I love how the author reveals the chapters. The African chapter really resonated with me because i have lived and seen most of what he talked about. I love how the book is cleverly disguised about Hector and not another "self-help book"
Finally, I have to hand it to Francois for being so open about his complicated relationships! Many of us hide it, but he has used it to show people that life isn't as straightforward as society sometimes makes it to be...
I highly recommend reading this book!
