The Happiest Man in the World provides a unique and compelling insight into the life and legacy of a man who found true happiness in relinquishment and selfless service.
In his inspiring story, Dr. Jackson describes his varied life experiences including: childhood lessons in entrepreneurship, making millions in mountain real estate development, relinquishing his wealth in order to “start over,” serving as an international economic consultant, and later, founding the international humanitarian organization, Project C.U.R.E., which delivers donated medical supplies and equipment to developing country health care facilities.
From his personal experiences visiting some of the world’s poorest and most dangerous places, Dr. Jackson describes the heartbreak of seeing children die of treatable illnesses simply because the doctors and nurses lacked proper medical equipment and supplies. He also shares the joy expressed by doctors and nurses who saw containers full of donated medical supplies arrive just in time to save a life.
The book provides an honest and personal assessment of the challenges and professional obstacles that confronted him, as well as best practices for building a “Business of Goodness.” Dr. Jackson challenges people everywhere to learn from his life experiences, and join him in becoming “The Happiest People in the World!”
