An American writer, Doris Lee McCoy has launched her fifth book entitled “The Magic of Gross National Happiness” at the Tarayana foundation conference hall in the capital city of Bhutan on September 10, 2010.
According to Doris, Bhutan is the eighth happiest nation in the world. America has been place in the 23rd position, Germany 35th, and England 41st.
Doris stressed that the people around the globe have begun to realize the importance of happiness further adding that there are 26 happiness clubs in America.
She said the four pillars of GNH splitting into nine domains gave specifics for other countries to be able to use as an example they might also use in theirs.
Interestingly, this book could not catch the plight of those citizens who were expelled from the country only when they tried to safeguard their own happiness.
