From the Publisher. Aside from love, few activities seem to promise us as much happiness as going traveling: taking off for somewhere else, somewhere far from home, a place with more interesting weather, customs, and landscapes. But although we are inundated with advice on where to travel, few people seem to talk about why we should go and how we can become more fulfilled by doing so. In The Art of Travel, Alain de Botton, author of How Proust Can Change Your Life, explores what the point of travel might be and modestly suggests how we can learn to be a little happier in our travels.

Being a veteran traveler, I love this positive yet critical view of traveling and how travel is something much deeper than the conscious realizes. De Botton is a brilliant writer and I recommend all his novels and socio-dissections.
