Description: Professor Chandra is an expert at complex problems. There's just one he can't crack: the secret of happiness. In the moments after the accident, Professor Chandra doesn't see his life flash before his eyes, but his life's work. He's just narrowly missed the Nobel Prize (again) and even though he knows he should get straight back to his pie charts, his doctor has other ideas. All this work. All this success. All this stress. It's killing him. He needs to take a break, start enjoying himself. In short, says his doctor (who is from California), Professor Chandra should just follow his bliss. Professor Chandra doesn't know it yet, but he's about to embark on the trip of a lifetime. [Taken from book blurb, Vintage Books]
