The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well Reviews
"Hygge is about giving yourself and others a treat.

I should begin my review of The Little Book of Hygge with a confession: I hate winter. I hate everything about winter. I hate the snow. I hate the cold. I hate coats and hats and mittens. The months of January and February could be wiped off the calendar for all I care. I’ll take a double dose of July and August in their place. Sometimes I wish I was a bear so I could just sleep through the whole thing and wake up in the spring. So the concept of hygge, originating from a people long accustomed ...more

This book is so cozy and relaxing. And no surprise in describing Denmark as "the happiest country in the world". This life-style is actually so different from the life-style here in Egypt (obviously!). Reading this book only made me feel so warm, relaxed and comfortable. I may try to practice ...more
2.5 stars - It was alright, an average book.
An easy read about a warm and fuzzy topic, but the book became very repetitive after the first 25%. While I enjoyed the beginning, by the end I was looking forward to moving on to my next book.
Favorite Quote: While basic living standards are essential for happiness, after the baseline has been met, happiness varies more with quality of human relationships than income.
First Sentence: I have the best job in th ...more
This is a delightful little book about a concept that is popular in Denmark. "Hygge" (pronounced hooga) is a concept that doesn't directly translate into English. The word might be translated as "coziness" or "happiness" or "taking pleasure from simple things." I picked up this book because I plan to go to Denmark later this summer. The country has the reputation of being the happiest place in the world. But, this is not quite true--it is really the least unhappy country, due to its extensive so ...more
