In Bill Bailey’s Remarkable Guide to Happiness, Bill explores the nature of happiness and ways to be, well, happy. Being Bill Bailey however, he does so in his own, remarkable, Bill Bailey way.
From paddle-boarding down the Thames in a Santa hat, to wild swimming in a glacial river, Bill considers the exhilaration of the outdoors, as well as the quieter pleasures of clearing out your moth-eaten grey t-shirts. He attempts to see beyond the mumbo-jumbo of the wellness industry and aims for the heart of real joy and contentment – and how we can all achieve it.
This collection of funny, meditative and thoughtful essays seeks out simplicity and clarity as a corrective to the endless background noise of anxiety-inducing news chatter. Whether it’s whooping aloud while cycling through a pine forest, putting pen to paper, or immersing yourself in music, Bill’s guide to happiness is an antidote to the frenetic whirl of modern life.
Fully illustrated with drawings by Bill himself, this is a wonderful gift of a book for anyone who needs a slice of comfort.
