Book Description

July 31 2012 Hector's journeys
The delightful third book in the multimillion-copy internationally bestselling series

Being up against the clock was a real problem for so many people, thought Hector. What could he possibly do to help them?

First he tackled happiness. Then he took on love. And now Hector, our endearing young French psychiatrist, confronts the persistent march of time.

His patients lament that there is not enough time in the day. Or they feel that life is passing them by. And in one case, a young boy turns the problem on its head: He's impatient to grow up! Hector himself is increasingly aware of time: He doesn't feel quite so young anymore, and the clock is ticking on his relationship with his beloved Clara.

So as time flies, so does our wise and winsome hero in his latest adventure, traveling around the world to understand the past, the future, and how best to enjoy the present.

About the Author

François Lelord has had a successful career as a psychiatrist in France, where he was born, and in the United States, where he did his postdoc (UCLA). He is the co-author of a number of bestselling self-help books and has consulted for companies interested in reducing stress for their employees. He was on a trip to Hong Kong, questioning his personal and professional life, when the Hector character popped into his mind, and he wrote Hector and the Search for Happiness not quite knowing what kind of book he was writing. The huge success of Hector, first in France, then in Germany and other countries, led him to spend more time writing and traveling, and at the height of the SARS epidemic he found himself in Vietnam, where he practiced psychiatry for a French NGO whose profits go toward heart surgery for poor Vietnamese children. While in Vietnam he also met his future wife, Phuong; today they live in Thailand.

François Lelord’s series of novels about Hector’s journeys includes Hector and the Search for Happiness, Hector and the Secrets of Love, and Hector and the Search for Lost Time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great gift Nov. 26 2012
By Robert L. Magni - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my girlfriend because she has the first two and really enjoys them.
I've heard nothing but good things about Mr LeLord's books, although I yet to read it myself, they make enjoyable quick reads that leave you waiting impatiently for the next one to be translated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hector does it again! Oct. 20 2012
By Jeimy M Gonzalez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like a fine wine, Hector's tales get better with time (some pun intended). In his third adventure, Lelord delves into his topic with his usual philosophical and psychological viewpoints, but also offers insights from the branches of physics and biology, giving the reader ample viewpoints on the passage of time.
4.0 out of 5 stars Different and Interesting Oct. 11 2013
By enjoyment reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Light reading but very interesting and gives time a different perspective than the one we are used to having. Would recommend for those looking for something different to read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Condition was poor but subject was good Feb. 26 2013
By Teresa A. Jarvis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book condition was poor from having been wet and the pages were warped and dirty.
The subject of the book was good though and I plan to read some of the other books from
Hector and Lelord.
