The Little Book of Lykke: The Danish Search for the World's Happiest People Reviews
His job is FASCINATING and I applaud him for what he does- but the book was annoying with his endless bragging about Denmark. I was confused by how often he compared the Danes studies to the United States when the population and demographics make it very difficult to produce a sound argument. I do think the country has many habits the United States would benefit from, however, and I appreciate the work he is doing. I would be interested to read the book that came before this one, too.
The Little Book of Lykke was my first read of 2018, and it was the perfect choice to start the year off positively. I highly recommend it to everyone. It’s an excellent follow-up book to The Little Book of Hygge, full of inspiration for how you can participate in creating a kinder, happier world. You’ll want to be a better person after reading it.
“Everything runs smoothly in Denmark. Well, almost. Four years ago, one train did arrive five minutes late. The passengers each got a letter of apology from the prime minister and a designer chair of their choice as compensation.”
I read “The Little Book Of Lykke” on and off between being in Denmark and now - so nearly two months. A long time for such a short book but I wanted to be able to relate the content and practices in reflection to my own lifestyle.

Nakon The Little Book of Hygge, objavljene 2016., prošla godina donijela je svojevrsni nastavak: The Little Book of Lyke, ili kako u hrvatskom prevodu glasi - Lykke - Potraga za najsretnijim ljudima na svijetu.
Lykke je podijeljena na devet poglavlja od kojih šest govore o dijelovima slagalice koji ljude čine srećnijim: zajedništvo, novac, zdravlje, sloboda, povjerenje i ljubaznost, a unutar ovih šest poglavlja nalaze se razrada teme, savjeti i primjeri drugih ljudi.

Kinda fun and not serious. I liked the examples of how people have created communities and happiness in their lives.
Chouette lecture légère, inspirante et inspirée sur le bonheur à travers le monde. Le ton de Meik Wiking est léger et drôle, et quand on referme ce livre on se dit qu'il faudrait sans doute faire plus de choses comme nos voisins danois !
Pas forcément à lire d'une traite, mais à picorer, feuilleter de temps à autres pour se souvenir de prendre le temps du bonheur...
This was an interesting read. There was quite a lot of information about happiness and what can make people happy. I didn't love this one as much as his first book but I still quite enjoyed this one.
I thought this was going to be a disappointing read, nothing but a publisher's ploy to make more money out of a tried and tested author (and let's face it, it still is) BUT I really loved reading this. I loved the photos included, and I loved the style of illustrations. I liked the global view it took but still with an element of focus on Denmark a.k.a. my future home. I also loved how the inclusion of resources/apps/websites etc which can help us all be happier.
