CriticasOne of Latin America's most popular self-help authors and Argentina's most-wanted therapist, Bucay has published the final book in Hojas de Ruta ("Waybill"), the author's inspirational series that gives advice about how to live life to the fullest. The other titles in the series include El camino de la autodependencia (The Road to Self-Dependence, Oceano, 2001), El camino del encuentro (The Road to Encounter, Criticas, Sept./Oct. 2002) and El camino de las l grimas (The Road of Tears, Criticas, Sept./Oct. 2002), all unique self-help guides that make use of fables, letters from patients, references to literature and history, and analysis. In this fourth book, Bucay discusses the traditional definitions of happiness-achieving success, falling in love, having fun, and avoiding pain-and illustrates the fallacy in each definition. Happiness, he claims, in not a destination but a road or process in which a person not only discovers his purpose in life but also dedicates his life to working toward it. Once again, Bucay brings together stories, personal examples, diagrams, and illustrations to make his points. His style is simple, readable, and personal, and he entertains readers by poking fun at himself and his own path to self-discovery. Highly recommended for all public and academic libraries and bookstores. (To learn more about Bucay, see the cover story in the Sept./Oct. 2002 issue.
