Reviews

Wiking...[cites] psychological research showing that close social relationships and time spent socializing, eating, and relaxing tend to be the greatest drivers of joy.

-- "Elle"

Comfort, coziness, warmth-that's what Hygge is. It's tailor-made for turbulent times, and this guide from Denmark can help you find it.

-- "People"

The Little Book of Hygge...a bestseller in Britain...is the most engaging of what is becoming a full-fledged lifestyle category.

-- "New York Times"

Hygge is the Danish word used to describe the sensation of 'cosy intimacy' you get when you are at home surrounded by your loved ones.

-- "Guardian (London)"

Think cozy nights in front of a roaring fire, a cup of tea with a good book, a winter walk along a beach...and say hello to the way of life that's been keeping the Danes happy for years.

-- "Mail on Sunday (London)"

May just be your passport to bliss.

-- "Real Simple"

Ever wondered why Denmark is always ranked one of the happiest places on earth? Well, that's down to hygge. And want to know what hygge is? Then read this book.

-- "Daily Mail (Ireland)"

After listening to this audiobook-and you might find yourself wanting to invite author Meik Wiking over for some mulled wine...Narrating with a slight accent, Wiking is an able and appealing reader of his own work, which serves as both an in-depth explanation of hygge as well as a treatise on how and why its practice might impact our overall happiness and well-being...If you're of a certain disposition, this audiobook experience will feel like a warm blanket on a dark winter night.
